There have been several reports that Trump plans to announce the termination of DACA by Tuesday. There are different variations on the reporting, but only in the details of how and when DACA will end.
None of this matters!
Congress has the power to stop this!
Leave it all on the field!
With healthcare we called, wrote emails, wrote letters, and then… we did it all again and again and again. We need to do the same to save DACA. If congress were to pass the Dream act with a veto proof majority, then Trump becomes irrelevant.
Congress gets back to work on Tuesday. Leave them no doubt where we stand.
Flood their voicemails and emails!
ACTION 1: Call both senators again and leave a message:
• Patty Murray: (206) 553-5545
• Maria Cantwell: (206) 220-6400
My name is [NAME] and I'm calling from [CITY, ZIP] to ask Senator [MOC NAME] to co-sponsor the bipartisan Durbin-Graham “DREAM Act” (S. 1615) and do everything in her power to build a veto proof majority. This does have bipartisan support.
ACTION 2: Call your congressperson again and leave a message:
• Pramila Jayapal (WA-07): (202) 225-3106
• Adam Smith (WA-09): (425) 793-5180
My name is [NAME] and I'm calling from [CITY, ZIP] to ask Representative [MOC NAME] co-sponsor Rep. Gutierrez’s American Hope Act (H.R. 3591) to protect those with DACA status as well as others and to do everything in her/his power to build a veto proof majority. This has bipartisan support.
