Thank our MOCs for Standing with Immigrants

Official Daily Action for Wednesday, December 5, 2018

All four of our Members of Congress have co-written a letter to the Acting Inspector General John Kelly asking for an investigation into conditions at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, and into the death of asylum-seeker Mergansana Amar.

Rep Jayapal went to the border this last weekend, and used her power to help people on the ground there.

Let's thank them for their good work!

  • Rep. Pramila Jayapal: DC - 202-225-3106; Seattle - 206-674-0040

  • Rep. Adam Smith: DC - 202-225-8901; Renton - 425-793-5180

  • Sen. Patty Murray--DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545

  • Sen. Maria Cantwell--DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400
