Daily Action

Now that Trump has passed Congress the timebomb of DACA repeal, he is demanding that DACA’s renewal be couched in an immigration agenda “that hard-line conservatives have been pursuing for decades” (New York Times). The demands include building Trump’s wall, stripping the rights of asylum-claimers, restricting which family members residents can bring to America, and turning down unaccompanied children fleeing drug wars. Immigration advocates nationwide have opposed these cruel measures. So will we.

Example script:
“Hello, my name is [name] from [city, zip], and I’m calling about Trump’s demands for DACA renewal. They are nothing less than a wish-list for anti-immigrant hard-liners, and we cannot give in. Any congressional proposal to protect Dreamers must do so without throwing countless other immigrants under the bus.”
