Halt Plans For Invasive Inspections of Immigrants’ Social Media Accounts

Target: Jeff Sessions, Attorney General of the United States of America

Goal: Block policy that would require potential immigrants to turn over their social media information before crossing the border.

Men and women immigrating to America may soon face another discriminatory hurdle. The Trump Administration announced a plan that requires immigrants currently applying for citizenship to turn over their social media handles. The government plans to check the past five years of these social media accounts in an effort to discern the political leanings of future citizens. Reportedly part of a new vetting program, the plan has been widely criticized across the board.

The plan is not yet in effect. The administration announced there would be a 60-day period where the public has the ability to comment. Be part of the conversation and sign the petition below to demand a halt to this barbaric and discriminatory policy before it ever takes effect.


Dear Attorney General Sessions,

President Trump has recently announced plans to force all immigrants to turn over their social media profiles for inspection. Not only is the plan by President Trump unconstitutional, but downright Orwellian. The invasion of privacy that will occur from this change is in stark contrast to the core values that make America great.

We are a nation that prides ourselves on personal property and privacy. Why would you create a new generation of American migrants who will never know what that is like? This plan is invasive, destructive, expensive, and generally unnecessary. We demand you stop this policy before it ever takes action.
