Daily Action: No spending bill without support for Dreamers

Senator Kamala Harris said last week: "I will not vote for an end-of-year spending bill until we're clear about what we're going to do to protect & take care of DACA young people." (https://twitter.com/SenKamalaHarris/status/923204432128552960)

Democrats don't have the votes to unilaterally pass the DREAM Act, but, amazingly, Republicans don't have the votes to pass their end-of-year budget bill on their own because members of their party simply will never vote for a compromise bill. The only way that the end of year budget bill will be passed is with support from the Democrats in the House and Senate.

This means that we have leverage. Let's make sure our Members of Congress know we want them to use it. Today, we're going to make 3 calls: one to each of our Senators and one to your Congressperson.

Call Both

  • Senator Patty Murray: (206) 553-5545
  • Senator Maria Cantwell: (206) 220-6400

Call One

  • Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal: (206) 674-0040
  • Congressman Adam Smith: (425) 793-5180

Sample Script

Hi, my name is {NAME} and I'm calling from {CITY, ZIP}. Senator Kamala Harris said last week that she won't vote for any end of year budget bill until we know how we're going to protect Dreamers. Will {MoC Name} follow Senator Harris's lead and defend our Dreamers?
