Senators: Don’t Cave to Trump’s Mob

Yesterday evening, Trump gave an unhinged speech threatening to declare a national emergency in order to bypass Congress and build a wall. Proposing to increase executive power solely to complete a pet project – that is the action of a tyrant.

During his Tuesday night speech, Trump asked his supporters to call their Senators in support of his racist border wall. Our Senators’ voiceboxes filled up yesterday – we hope with messages of support from SI members and like-minded people across the state. But we can’t let our voices be drowned out by hate! If you called yesterday, call again and share this action with friends and family. If you haven’t called yet, now is the time! Be sure to try the DC office if you can't get through to Seattle.

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

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

SCRIPT:

“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. After Trump’s call for extremist support during Tuesday night’s speech, I'm calling to reiterate my support for Senator [NAME]’s refusal to fund Trump’s wall. I hope that the Senator will continue to block business-as-usual in the Senate until a clean no-wall budget is brought up for a vote. Thank you for fighting for what is right."
