CREDO leads protest at DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s house in Alexandria, Virginia
This morning, we led a protest at the Alexandria, Virginia house of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, one of Trump’s leading henchmen who is implementing Trump’s cruel and inhumane immigration policy.
She doesn’t just oversee the ICE and Border Protection agents who are ripping families apart, criminalizing immigrants and terrorizing immigrant communities, she also spent much of the last few weeks defending and even denying the atrocities she was committing.
At the protest, we loudly played leaked audio of crying children who were separated from their parents at the border and marched with signs branding Nielsen a “child snatcher.”
You can watch a video of the protest here:
Dozens of media outlets have reported on the protest, including major publications like the Washington Post and Newsweek, and one video by HuffPost reporter Phil Lewis has been viewed over a half a million times already:
