Susan Anglada Bartley started this petition to Senator Jeff Merkley and

Don't Shoot PDX is demanding that Senator's Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and all United States Senators who uphold the U.S. constitution vote AGAINST the Senate confirmation of Acting Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Chad Wolf. Chad Wolf supported Donald Trump in developing and implementing the "no-tolerance" immigration policy that includes child and family separation. As one of the key overseers and lead deniers of this morally bereft policy, thousands of immigrant children are separated from their families, were locked in cages, and many have never been reconnected. Chad Wolf denies the harm caused by these inhumane, cruel policies. His active support of these policies will be scripted in the historical record as crimes against humanity. 


In addition to these abhorrent actions toward immigrant communities, Chad Wolf is responsible for violence toward fellow Oregonians. He openly defended the actions of the "Federal Officers" in Portland. Those who experienced their brutality know that these "Federal Officers" used dangerous chemical agents, shot non-violent demonstrators, snatched protestors and non-affiliated civilians off of the streets and held them illegally for hours with no access to attorneys or notification for the reason of arrest, wore no identification, and demonstrated excessive violent force toward members of our community. Federal Officers also targeted medics with chemical agents and projectiles (https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/oct/08/portland-protests-medics-police) Please join us in raising this collective demand that Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley and all United States Senators who have a moral conscience stand on the side of Human Rights by voting against the confirmation of Chad Wolf.


In Addition to his moral depravity, Acting Senator Wolf was never properly nominated, confirmed or approved by the Senate to take over as the Secretary of the DHS. Below is a synopsis of the unethical and unconstitutional moves made by President Donald Trump to maneuver Wolf into power:
