Tell Governor Greg Abbott To Keep the Texas National Guard Out of Donald Trump’s Deportation Force

To be delivered to Governor Greg Abbott

Petition Statement

The White House has drafted a memo calling for the Texas National Guard to round up hundreds of thousands of immigrants in Texas. But this can’t happen without Governor Greg Abbott's approval. We demand that Governor Greg Abbott keeps our state’s National Guard out of Donald Trump’s Deportation Force.
There are currently 7,324 signatures. NEW goal - We need 7,500 signatures!

Petition Background

According to the Associated Press, the Trump administration is considering a plan mobilize as many as 100,000 National Guard troops to round up millions of undocumented immigrants in states along the southern border. This includes states like California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas; as well as states adjacent to border states, like Oregon, Nevada, Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Utah, and Louisiana.

Governors have the final approval on National Guard deployments. This means Donald Trump’s plan won’t work without the support of Governors.

So if we want to stop the systematic removal of millions of aspiring Americans from the United States by the National Guard, we need to make sure Governors in the targeted states hear from their constituents.

Please join with me and demand that Governor Greg Abbott does not authorize the Texas National Guard from joining Donald Trump’s Deportation Force.
