Thank Our Reps for Fighting for Dreamers

Official Daily Action for Friday, May 25

Democrats and moderate Republicans in the House of Representatives are five signatures away from forcing a vote on bipartisan legislation to create a path to legal status and perhaps for Dreamers, brought to the U.S. as children. If they succeed it will be a clear rebuke to Paul Ryan and the hard-right GOP.

Our Representatives, Adam Smith (WA CD9) and Pramila Jayapal (WA CD7), have signed the “discharge petition” to force a vote on Dreamers,  as has retiring Republican Congressman Dave Reichert (WA CD8). All deserve thanks for bucking the anti-immigrant tide and keeping the Dream alive.

ACTION: Call our Representatives, and thank them for fighting for Dreamers.

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

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

SUGGESTED SCRIPT:

Hi, my name is [NAME], and I'm calling from [CITY, ZIP]. I want to thank [NAME] for signing on to the discharge petition to finally bring bills creating a path to citizenship for Dreamers  to the House floor. I know [NAME] will continue to fight for fair and comprehensive immigration reform.

Bonus Action: Call friends and family in the 8th CD (Reichert) and ask them to thank Dave Reichert for standing up to Ryan and Trump.

Rep Dave Reichert  - DC (202) 225-7761; Issaquah (425) 677-7414
