Senators! Hold strong for Dreamers and CHIP!

Today is the last day for the Continuing Resolution to keep the government running. This is where we have leverage for the Dream Act. Republicans have also tried to separate the CHIP Childrens Insurance Program from the CR. 

The house voted to pass a CR yesterday, but there aren't enough votes in the Senate to pass it. Tell our Senators to hold strong. No Clean Dream Act, No CR.

  • Patty Murray: DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545
  • Sen. Maria Cantwell: DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Action: Tell our Senators to hold strong! Any CR must include a Clean DREAM Act, and CHIP funding.

Script: 

“My name is [NAME] and I am calling from [CITY, ZIP]. I'm calling to ask Senator [NAME] to hold strong on the Clean DREAM Act and CHIP, and do everything she can to block the Continuing Resolution until it contains these. We need to protect ALL American kids, whether they're DREAMers, or sick kids getting care through CHIP. I understand that a government shutdown will hurt, but we need to stand for our principles now. Please tell the Senator we have her back. Don't back down."
