Today’s Action: Not one cent more for border terror – #DefundHate

Last night, the House passed a spending bill that includes $5 billion for Trump’s border wall. This comes in direct conflict with the Senate, which passed a temporary funding bill through February 8 with *no* increased funding for Trump’s crazed xenophobia. With Congress in disagreement, we are now likely facing a partial government shutdown, as the deadline for the spending bill is today.

Democrats don’t want a government shutdown, which could leave hundreds of thousands of government workers without pay over the holidays. This is an artificial Republican crisis, brought on by Trump’s insistence in a hateful border wall campaign promise — that he swore Mexico would pay for. We cannot accept one more cent of funding for Trump to continue tear-gassing asylum-seekers and placing children in prisons.

With the new House entering in under two weeks, Democrats now have leverage to hold firm and stop ANY additional funding for Trump’s border agenda.

Not one cent more. Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them to reject ANY funding bill that includes additional funds for Trump’s border war or inhumane tactics against asylum seekers.

We’re about to enter a new era in the Trump presidency, in which he doesn’t get to bully Congress into everything he wants. We made our feelings clear at the polls, and it’s now time for Republicans in Congress to understand the shift that has occurred and for Democrats to use their upcoming majority for righting the wrongs of the past two years.

But we shouldn’t wait until January 3rd, because time is not on Trump’s side right now — jump on the phones today to #DefundHate.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them any funding bill with more money for a border wall is unacceptable, and would only continue Trump’s trend of tear-gassing and jailing immigrant children and asylum-seekers.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to charge Trump for trying to influence confessed felon Michael Flynn, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
