Trump’s Budget Turns Back Clock on Justice

The Trump Administration’s proposed budget for FY 2018 is an assault on the economic security, safety, and civil rights of low-income communities, immigrants, and people of color. The budget proposes tax cuts for the wealthy at the expense of significant to cuts to the safety net and health care, along with youth, education, and job training programs. DOJ’s specific budget request is dangerous and clearly doubles down on the president’s campaign promises and the administration’s executive orders and policy positions.
