Today’s Action: Tell your Governor to resist Trump’s agents who are kidnapping protesters

The past week in Portland, OR, we’ve watched in horror as Department of Homeland Security (DHS) troops invaded protests against police brutality, on Trump’s orders. In camo and tactical gear, Customs & Border Protection (CBP) agents are pulling protesters off the street and into unmarked vans with no explanation, and departing for undisclosed locations. They have also used tear gas on hundreds and shattered the skull of a peaceful protester.

These are grossly unconstitutional actions – but the threat of “unconstitutional” hasn’t stopped Trump in the past. In fact, Acting Deputy of DHS Ken Cuccinelli says he wants to take this tactic nationwide.

Call or email your Governor and demand they resist Trump’s plan to send federal troops into your state’s protests. Follow with a call or email to your Members of Congress, and tell them to support Sen. Jeff Merkley’s amendment to the Defense Authorization Act to limit the deployment of federal troops. 

Trump’s invasion came as protests were already de-escalating – making it perfectly clear that this was a publicity stunt (which, again, shattered at least one person’s skull). But Trump is heading into November’s election in desperate need for good publicity. How many more protesters will be injured, how many constitutional rights obliterated, before his poll numbers look better?

What’s happening in Portland is deeply disturbing, yet another boundary-breaking test for how far Trump can go in suppressing the opposition. And with Trump already saying he won’t commit to conceding the election if he loses, imagine the opposition – and the unconstitutional federal response – we’ll have at that point. Unless we call out this dictator and fight him now.

Email or call your Governor and tell them to keep Trump’s unlawful, violent federal troops out of our protests for justice. Then, email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand their support of Sen. Jeff Merkley’s amendment to the Defense Authorization Act to handcuff Trump’s ability to send out more troops.
