ACTION: Call To Condemn the Muslim Ban

From Indivisible Oregon....

**CALL TO ACTION**
Thursday, March 9
On Monday, the Trump administration repackaged what is, at its very core, an unconstitutional Muslim ban under the guise of national security. The executive order singles out refugees and people from six Muslim-majority countries and has the same fatal flaws as the first attempt. It does not represent American values and it violates our Constitution.
Our MoC's have made strong statements against the new ban:
Senator Merkley:  http://bit.ly/2lwOLCF
Senator Wyden: http://bit.ly/2mkaOvk
Congressman Blumenauer: http://bit.ly/2m1nCDo
Congressman DeFazio: http://bit.ly/2n7spnJ
Congresswoman Bonamici: http://bit.ly/2m5105Q
However, statements are not enough. The only way to fix a Muslim ban is to get rid of it. We must implore our senators to do everything in their power to fight Trump's unconstitutional Muslim ban.

**ACTION 1: CALL BOTH SENATORS**
Sample Script
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I’d like to express my concern about President Trump’s recent executive order banning travel from 6 majority Muslim countries. I was glad to see the Senator has made a statement condemning this ban; however, this unconstitutional executive action requires more than words. Will the Senator use every tool available to fight this discriminatory action?”
**ACTION 2: CALL YOUR US REPRESENTATIVE**

Sample Scripts for Blumenauer, Bonamici and DeFazio:
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I’d like to express my concern about President Trump’s recent executive order banning travel from 6 majority Muslim countries. I was glad to see the Congressperson has made a statement condemning this ban; however, this unconstitutional executive action requires more than words. Will the Congressperson use every tool available to fight this stop this discriminatory action?”
Sample Scripts for Walden and Schrader:
“My name is [--] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon. I’d like to express my concern about President Trump’s recent travel ban. It singles out refugees and people from six Muslim-majority countries and has the same fatal flaws as the first attempt. It does not represent American values and it violates our Constitution. Will the Congressperson take a stand against this discriminatory action?”
**ACTION 3: COMMENT BELOW TO TELL US HOW IT WENT!**
