Joining with millions throughout the nation and world in solidarity, love, and peaceful protest, they held watch against the injustice, bigotry, and cruelty happening to our immigrant neighbors. A tremendous thank you to the planners and participants.


THIS WEEK’S ACTIONS

Ask Congress to act to end abuse of detained immigrants

Please call our elected officials and ask them to act now to end the mistreatment and abuse of detained immigrants.

Suggested script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm a constituent from [CITY/ZIP]. I'm horrified and outraged by the reports of abuses of detained immigrants, from massive overcrowding, physical and emotional torment to denial of basic sanitary supplies to children. I ask for an immediate and robust investigation of immigration enforcement practices and detention conditions, and an end of the mass detention of all undocumented immigrants. Thank you for your time and attention. IF LEAVING A VOICEMAIL: Please leave your full street address to ensure your call is tallied.

Ask Dan Newhouse to defund hate

The biggest fight on immigration this year will be over funding. Trump’s systematic attacks against immigrants continue. He shut down the government for over a month in efforts to fund his hateful wall and has already requested billions more for ICE and CBP in next year’s budget, “FY20.” He hopes to use the money to pay for his wall, more ICE and CBP agents, and more cages for immigrant families.

Representative Dan Newhouse sits on the Appropriations Committee in the House. He is among those making the decisions about funding levels for both ICE and CBP. Those of you living in his district need to be loud and vigilant right now. Your voice has power to apply constituent pressure and influence the outcome.

Suggested script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm a constituent from [CITY/ZIP]. I ask that Representative Newhouse, as a member of the House Appropriations Committee, support rolling back the funding for ICE and CBP enforcement to fiscal year 2016 levels, and not increase the budgets, as requested by the President. Cages and militarization don’t make us safer. Instead, they terrorize communities, drive migrants to their deaths, and waste billions of dollars that should be spent on health care, education, and other things that make our communities safer. Our immigrant neighbors should not be living in fear. Agents of the United States of America should not be violating the civil rights of anyone in the course of their work. Thank you for your time and attention. IF LEAVING A VOICEMAIL: Please leave your full street address to ensure your call is tallied.

Ask Kim Schrier to vote against increasing ICE and CBP enforcement funding

Representative Kim Schrier does not sit on the House Appropriations Committee, but she can still have meaningful impact on the process. If you live in her district, please consider asking her to not support increased funding for ICE and CBP enforcement.

Suggested script: Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm a constituent from [CITY/ZIP]. I am calling to ask Representative Schrier to commit to voting against any bill that increases funding for ICE and CBP enforcement. Our immigrant neighbors should not be living in fear. Agents of the United States of America should not be violating the due process, human dignity, and civil rights of anyone in the course of their work. Thank you for your time and attention. IF LEAVING A VOICEMAIL: Please leave your full street address to ensure your call is tallied.
