ACTION: Call to Stop Support of Trump Agenda in Continuing Budget Resolution

From Indivisible Oregon...

**CALL TO ACTION**
Tuesday, April 18, 2017
————————————————————————————
DO NOT SUPPORT THE TRUMP AGENDA IN THE CONTINUING BUDGET RESOLUTION
————————————————————————————
No #AmericaLast Budget
When Congress returns from recess, they must approve a Continuing Resolution (CR) if they are to keep the government running. Do not support the Trump anti-immigrant and pro-defense agenda through this CR process. 
- Currently, by agreement of both the House and Senate, the current budget expires April 28th and the government will shut down absent another continuing resolution to keep the government running. http://bit.ly/2gbBM1X
- Trump’s proposed “emergency defense and security supplemental funding” seeks $30 billion to further Trump’s agenda to build a wall at the Mexican border, fund additional detention centers for deportees, hire additional border patrol, and increase defense spending. http://usat.ly/2pvP4w3
- Our Members of Congress should set the stage for a budget battle for FY 2018, by resisting the wall, detention and boarder security, including additional defense spending. 
Although a government shut-down is highly undesirable, the last time a party did so, that party later took control of the House, Senate and the White House. Trump's budget is a threat to our American ideals; these ideals are worth fighting for.
Let’s stand up to the Trump agenda.
