Until the 2020 Election
NATIONAL CALL-IN DAY
CONGRESS, DEFUND HATE
There are seven working days left for Congress to get a budget passed in order to keep the government funded and operating. Trump and his Republican allies must not be allowed to cynically use the need to keep vital government programs operating to grab more money for ICE, CBP and his wall.
The continuing resolution passed in September will expire November 21st. Whether a final budget or another short-term funding bill is negotiated, Congress must refuse to fund Trump’s anti-immigration racism.
Demand a budget that:
- Gives Trump ZERO for his border wall.
- Cuts funding for ICE and CBP to 2016 levels.
- Includes language that blocks backdoor funding increases. DHS must not be allowed to transfer money Congress has approved for other purposes to ICE and CBP. Trump believes he can just take any money that he wants.
- Adopts strong guardrails to prevent abuses by ICE and CBP and institutes strict standards for detention facilities. Otherwise, our representatives in Congress will be complicit in the continuing inhumane treatment of immigrants in our country.
Join National Call-in Day!
Stand Up to Trump’s Abusive Regime!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because . . .
. . . I want to make sure that any budget, including a short-term spending agreement, defunds hate. There must be no increased funding for ICE or CBP, or a border wall, and any funds budgeted must depend on humanitarian safeguards for immigrants. There must also be language to stop Trump’s shell game of moving money from other agencies to fund ICE, the wall or any other anti-immigrant actions.
Busy times! Finally, please tell the Senator to stay on top of the impeachment hearing and prepare the Senate for a REAL TRIAL.

**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 . . .
. . . to tell Greg Walden to find the courage to put humanity and country before party. I want to make sure that any budget, including a short-term spending agreement, defunds hate. There must be no increased funding for ICE or CBP, or a border wall, and any funds must depend on humanitarian safeguards for immigrants. There must also be language to stop Trump’s shell game of moving money from other agencies to fund ICE, the wall or any other anti-immigrant actions. Finally, please tell Greg to stand up and stop Trump’s continuing abuses of power by supporting impeachment.
Through Greg’s actions and inactions, he continues to signal his full support for trumpism, regardless of how much damage Trump is doing to our democracy and to world stability. Know that we are still here and will continue working to flip ORD2 Blue in 2020.
