Trump Will Not Make America Safe Again
President Trump ran on a platform of making America “safe again.” But his proposed cuts to the State Homeland Security Program make that seem like an empty campaign promise. Our states and localities must be prepared to deal with unforeseen events that could harm Americans. Whether the threat is terrorism or natural disasters, it is the government’s job to keep people out of harm’s way, and, if that fails, to help communities recover from tragedy.
The State Homeland Security Program funds state efforts to prevent, respond to, and recover from catastrophic events.
- Trump’s budget would gut this program by 25%
- That is a total of more than $100 million, which leaves states without the tools they need to look out for us during major crises.
- Trump’s budget would cut $15,044,625 from the homeland security program in California
Call your senators and tell them to reject this reckless slashing of an essential program.
