DID YOUR BALLOT ARRIVE? IF NOT, CLICK HERE OR LET US KNOW SO WE CAN HELP!
DAYS UNTIL BALLOTS DUE: 11
STAND WITH IMMIGRANTS
Trump and other Republican leaders like Greg Walden apparently don’t care about children and families. Not about the damage caused by separation and incarceration. Not about the lack of proper food and health care. Not if they’re poor, not if they’re brown.
Over 200 migrant children remain incarcerated months after a court ordered their release. Very young children have been tricked into signing away their rights.
Unable to sidestep the Flores agreement which guarantees the protection of migrant children, Trump plans to simply withdraw from it. Harsher “public charge” rules will make obtaining green cards virtually impossible for anyone who receives Medicaid or food stamps.
This is the future they want:
- Children held indefinitely in tent camps and facilities that states refuse to license as appropriate for child care.
- Reinstituting family separation by giving parents a choice to keep their child jailed with them indefinitely or jailed separately with some hope of finding a sponsor.
- Immigrants forced to choose between food and health care or hope for legal residency.
Trump is using the plight of the current caravan of migrants to stoke fear, pander to racism, and get out the vote for Republicans.
Walden’s Silence Signals Full Complicity!
Stand Up For Immigrants!
Immigrant Rights Are Human Rights!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and voter living in ZIP code [number]. I am calling because I’m deeply concerned that Congress left for recess when families are still separated, and children are traumatized. Now Trump and his regime are talking about separating families again. They do this because Congress has taken no action. I ask that the Senator to 1) work to pass the Senate REUNITE Act 2) hold hearings on what is happening at the border, 3) make sure no taxpayer money goes to fund a wall, and 4) call for the resignation of Stephen Miller. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [Name]. I am a constituent and voter living in ZIP code [number]. I am calling because I’m deeply concerned that Congress left for recess when families are still separated, and children are traumatized. Now Trump and his regime are talking about separating families again. They do this because Congress has taken no action. It is not too late for Greg Walden to find his humanity, to put people before party and 1) work to pass the House REUNITE Act 2) hold hearings on what is happening at the border, 3) make sure no taxpayer money goes to fund a wall, and 4) call for the resignation of Stephen Miller. Is Greg really this heartless?”
