Today’s Action: Block the #FakeNationalEmergencyl

On Monday, thousands of Americans gathered in the streets across the country to protest Trump’s #fakenationalemergency to build his wall. This illegal, undemocratic move entirely skirts the will of the people: 6 in 10 Americans are against it, Congress deliberately did NOT vote for it, and the ‘crisis’ is a manufactured and salacious lie to please Trump’s Twitter fanclub (which is how he makes most of his decisions).

To add insult to injury, Trump has raised the wall spending from $5.7 to $8 billion…and American taxpayers are definitely the ones paying for it.

There is NO emergency (undocumented immigrant numbers have actually dropped), and it’s up to the courts, to Congress, and to us to work in tandem to stop this dictatorial power grab.

Call or email your Members of Congress, and tell them to 1) immediately pass a resolution to end the emergency and block any funds for the wall, and 2) launch an investigation into abuses of power.

Using a state of emergency for an unwanted, unneeded monument to xenophobia is hardly legal. But it’s been used to justify Japanese internment camps and post-9/11 torture…and the wall would fall into the same shameful camp. Unless Congress stops it.

Congress is a ruling body equal to the presidency. For two years, Republicans in both chambers bent over backward to give Trump what he wanted. Now, Trump needs to grow up past a toddler’s understanding of negotiation and learn that throwing a tantrum won’t get him anywhere.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them to immediately pass a resolution to end the emergency, block any wall funding, and investigate Trump’s abuse of power.
