Today’s Action: Tell the Senate to pass a #NoWall budget

We are now in week five of Trump’s shutdown. This weekend, the president presented Democrats with a non-starter “deal,” offering Dreamers undefined and temporary protections against his own threats in exchange for a border wall most Americans don’t want and none of us need. Democratic leaders thankfully rejected it for the unacceptable garbage plan that it was.

Democrats in the House have passed legislation to open the government that Republicans already approved in the Senate in December, which includes additional funding for border security but no wall. Republicans in the Senate only need to pass the same legislation they were perfectly happy with last month before Trump’s Russian Roulette game with federal workers lives kicked into high gear.

Call or email your Senators and urge them to pass the House legislation they already passed in December to immediately open the government. Tell Republicans that Trump’s roulette needs to end now, and urge Democrats to continue holding strong against a racist border wall.

If the government does not reopen by this Friday, the 800,000 federal employees working without pay will miss their second paycheck. Tens of thousands of additional federal contractors are out of work, losing $200 million a day. TSA staffing is down, causing strain at all airports. And even the science community has seen heartbreaking losses in disrupted research due to pulled funding and shuttered doors.

The pressure is on Senate Republicans and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who has refused to bring any funding legislation which would actually pass the Senate to a vote.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand an end to the government shutdown. Tell Republicans to pass the House legislation that the Senate previously approved in December, and encourage Democrats to continue holding firm against a border wall.

Remember: Congress can overturn presidential veto…so we don’t need Trump to like our plan to make it happen.
