Note: when contacting these companies, please do be respectful. Many do provide services that are necessary such as translation, healthcare and shelter. The question, however, is whether it’s truly possible to help immigrants by serving a government that is hurting them. The people who work at these organizations aren’t exactly volunteers from the local church either. They’re making millions through these contracts and in many cases, their budgets have dramatically increased since Trump’s policies were introduced.

General Dynamics has a lucrative contract with the Office of Refuge Resettlement within the Department of Health and Human Services to help monitor youth cases as they move through the system.

This timing aligns with when the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” crackdown began, which has included separating over 2,000 children from their parents in a six-week period. Other General Dynamics jobs for ORR involve policy analysis; tracking “new placements and progress of minors in ORR funded care”; supporting ORR’s director in, among other tasks, “review[ing] files and redact[ing] information as directed.”

Southwest Key
“The $240 million-a-year Southwest Key organization has big contracts with the government to house immigrant minors in its two dozen low-security shelters in Texas, Arizona, and California, a population that in recent weeks has exploded with infants and children removed from their parents.” CNN reported in June 2018 that Southwest Key CEO Juan Sanchez makes $1.47 million a year, a salary that “reflects the organization’s growth.” That’s deeply problematic even for a nonprofit b/c it creates an incentive for guys like Sanchez to financially back extremists like Donald Trump in future elections. (For perspective, the head of the American Red Cross is paid $600k per year.)
