NO REST ON LABOR DAY
We had hoped to take a day off from making calls. But Trump and the GOP aren’t resting and neither can we.
This weekend reports came out that Trump is ending DACA (http://politi.co/2ewjz0H). And behind the scenes a legislative threat to the ACA is stealthily gaining momentum while we are rightly focused on Houston and Charlottesville.
So while you wrap up your summer vacations please . . .
1. Leave messages for our MoCs to make it clear we expect the DREAM Act (S. 1615/HR. 3440) to be the first action of business when Congress is back in session (http://bit.ly/2eUu0i3). We MUST stand by DREAMers and #DefendDACA
2. Get caught up on the GOP’s ACA repeal bill: Graham-Cassidy-Heller amendment (http://bit.ly/2vbOTfh). September brings the end of the reconciliation window for ACA repeal with 50 votes (http://bit.ly/2vSCJnq). The end is in sight.
September will be a busy month. Congress has a large to-do list (http://bit.ly/2xEwIgp) and we will be watching every step of the way.
Thank you for all your resistance efforts!
We are honored to work alongside you!
**ACTION: CALL SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY, AND CONGRESSMAN WALDEN**
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon, zip code [—]. I’m APPALLED by reports Trump will end DACA. He is abandoning American ideals and these kids. Please make passing the DREAM Act the first action of business when Congress resumes. We must support DREAMers and DACA. Thank you.”
