CURB TRUMP’S LAWLESSNESS
FIRE STEPHEN MILLER
PASS PRO-IMMIGRATION POLICIES
Trump has weaponized DHS immigration enforcement, purging any officials sensitive to legal guardrails. After installing Stephen Miller as its shadow head, Trump is planning more extreme, more violent, more illegal treatment of immigrants. This past week:
- He declared that he has the “absolute right” to illegally release immigrants from the southern border to sanctuary cities just to punish those cities and states
- He told border agents to block asylum seekers and promised to pardon the new Acting Secretary of DHS, Kevin McAleenan, should he face jail for denying US entry to immigrants
- He wants the military to – illegally — run camps for detainees and fantasized about soldiers “roughing up” immigrants at the border
- He is considering a Sophie’s choice-style policy for immigrant parents: stay with their children in indefinite detention, or send their children to another camp in hopes that relatives could take custody
Congress must protect the rule of law and human decency!
We ask Congress to immediately call for Stephen Miller’s resignation, and then clamp down on Trump’s DHS by passing immigrant protections, particularly the REUNITE Act and the Families Not Facilities Act.
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS WYDEN AND MERKLEY:
My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because…
I believe that Trump’s behavior is becoming increasingly lawless, especially concerning immigrants. I am asking the Senator to call for Stephen Miller’s immediate resignation and to support House committee subpoenas of Miller. I also ask that he work to pass laws to stop DHS’s illegal and cruel policies, especially the REUNITE Act and Families Not Facilities Act, among others now under consideration. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because . . .
I believe that Trump’s behavior is becoming increasingly lawless, especially concerning immigrants. Our democracy is at stake. I ask that Greg Walden call for Stephen Miller’s immediate resignation and to support House committee subpoenas of Miller. I also ask that he work to pass laws to stop DHS’s illegal and cruel policies, especially the REUNITE Act and Families Not Facilities Act, among others now under consideration.
There is no middle ground on this issue. Greg either supports Trump’s tyrannical regime’s immigration policies, or he has the backbone to take the bipartisan stand of championing human rights and the rule of law. Which is it?
