The names of Roxsana Hernández, Claudia Patricia Gómez González,
and Jakelin Ameí Rosmery Caal Maquin are emblazoned across a Times
Square billboard in New York City as a reminder that hate must be
defunded. All three lost their lives under the watch of unleashed
federal immigration agencies just this year alone.

Roxsana, a 33-year-old transgender asylum seeker originally from
Honduras, died in May 
[https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/12/6/1817505/-Senate-Democrats-demand-ICE-release-report-on-death-of-Roxsana-Hern-ndez-while-in-custody]while
under Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. Claudia, a
20-year-old indigenous woman from Guatemala, was shot and killed
[https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/9/4/1792425/-Three-months-later-the-killing-of-Claudia-G-mez-by-Border-Patrol-remains-shrouded-in-secrecy] by
a still-unnamed Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer that same
month. This month, Jakelin died while under CBP custody.
[https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/12/17/1819682/-DHS-watchdog-to-investigate-death-of-seven-year-old-Jakelin-Maquin-while-in-CBP-custody] She
was only 7 years old.

But rather than conducting oversight and investigating these tragic
deaths, Donald Trump wants billions in taxpayer dollars to fund his
stupid and racist border wall that most Americans don’t actually
care for.
[https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/12/11/americans-reality-generally-disagree-with-trumps-strategy-border-wall-funding/?utm_term=.fd97311a260d] If
he can’t get a wall, Plan B is a $1 _billion _piggy bank to fund
his deportation agenda as he sees fit, which will no doubt lead to
more Roxsanas, more Claudias, and more Jakelins. Enough, enough,
enough.

“We created this ad with the intention of showing people that
Trump’s demands aren’t only about a wall, they’re about
people’s lives," United We Dream’s Sanaa Abrar told
[https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna950121?__twitter_impression=true] NBC
News. The immigrant youth group is behind the billboard, which
features a count of the $5 billion that Trump is demanding. "Giving
the deportation agencies of ICE and CBP more money will mean more
people detained, more families separated and more deaths.”

Also featured in the billboard is Rosamaria Hernandez,
the 10-year-old who was stalked and detained
[https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/11/3/1712519/-10-year-old-Rosamaria-detained-for-over-a-week-has-been-released] by
CBP in Texas last year, following emergency gallbladder
surgery. Rosamaria, who has cerebral palsy, was repeatedly blocked
[https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/12/27/1727898/-These-were-some-of-the-faces-of-mass-deportation-in-2017] by
officials from accessing post-operative care. It finally took a
lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)—and zero help
from Texas U.S. senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz—to free her.

Following the death of 7-year-old Jakelin at the border and Trump’s
demand of $5 billion for his wall & additional enforcement,
@UnitedWeDream [https://twitter.com/UNITEDWEDREAM?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw]
launched a new ad in NYC's Times Square calling on elected officials
to reject Trump’s demands. #DefundHate

Immigrant youth themselves are fighting for the very survival of
families as their own futures in the U.S. remain in limbo. The courts
have kept the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program
alive, but the Trump administration is hoping the Supreme Court will
change that next year. House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi has
pledged
[https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/12/3/1816748/-Pelosi-says-Democratic-House-will-address-critical-immigration-issues-including-passing-DREAM-Act] to
address legislation putting DACA recipients on a path to citizenship
when the new Congress begins in January.
