Vote Against Deportation Funding


Congress needs to pass a funding bill by April 28 of this year, or the government will shut down. And Donald Trump is using the budget process to ram through one of his most vicious policies.

Trump is requesting additional money (a “supplemental request”) in order to begin work on his border wall, expand his internal deportation force, and add more detention facilities to hold immigrants. This money will be used to rip apart American families, harm communities, and make us all less safe.

And how does he plan to pay for this? By cutting funding from essential programs that actually keep us safe and healthy—programs like education, housing, disease prevention, disaster response, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Tell your MoCs that you don’t want Congress to spend one penny more to fund Trump’s deportation force, detention facilities or border wall. Tell them that you don’t want funding for essential programs cut.

**ACTION: Call our Senators and Congressman Walden**


“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I find the Trump administration’s heavy handed tactics to deport immigrants—breaking up families and holding people in detention camps—outrageous! We should not finance building a wall,  more detention facilities or expanding the deportation force by cutting essential programs for housing, education, disease prevention, disaster response and the EPA. Please ask the Senator/Congressman to vote NO on any budget proposal that guts our essential services!”
