The ILRC continues to produce and disseminate Red Cards, sturdy plastic cards that provide critical information on how to assert these rights, along with an explanation to ICE agents that the individual is indeed asserting those rights. The demand for cards has increased significantly since the election, and we have responded by increasing our orders and fulfilment, as well as providing the design and information on executing these rights here:

We ask you to please share these resources widely with your partners and colleagues, so that we can help preserve the progress in immigrants’ rights we have fought so hard for, and protect our neighbors during this challenging time.

Betsy DeVos, Education Secretary, and the Looting of Public Education Okay

“Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, and segregation forever.” This was white supremacist Alabama Governor George Wallace’s epic battle cry in his infamous 1963 Inaugural speech demonizing the civil rights movement.

For over a decade, DeVos, President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of Education, has been “at the helm” of a largely unsuccessful nationwide push to gut public education through voucher programs. According to the L.A. Times, “California and 36 other states have constitutional provisions—called Blaine amendments—that ban the expenditure of public money on religiously affiliated schools. Close to 80% of private school students attend religious schools, which would be ineligible for vouchers in Blaine amendment states.”
