National Day of Action Against Border Militarization

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Over the next 10 years, the bi-partisan “border surge” in S.744 will create one of the most militarized border zones in the world.  Let’s not forget that more than 7 million U.S. citizens, residents, and families live in border communities from San Diego, California to Brownsville, Texas.


Join Border Network for Human Rights and others across the U.S. and along the border in saying no to the militarization of our communities.
