Action: Trumps War On Immigrants Must Cease

IT’S SUMMER RECESS. WE’RE REPOSTING FRIDAY’S CALL. CALL AGAIN IF YOU ALREADY CALLED.  

TRUMP’S WAR ON IMMIGRANTS MUST CEASE


ACTION ONE: CALL YOUR SENATORS

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WYDEN AND MERKLEY:

My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because…
I’m calling because I am sickened by Trump’s latest attempt to stoke fear in the hearts of our immigrant communities. The Mississippi poultry plant raids are an act of government terror that has permanently traumatized these workers and their families. My senator must fight back against Trump’s racist, fascist, white nationalist deportation machine by
  •     Refusing to fund ICE until it is disbanded or reorganized.
  •     Pushing the house to have immediate public impeachment hearings.

BACKGROUND:

Trump’s racism, white nationalism, and fascism are on full display. On Wednesday, the first day of school, nearly 650 armed, black-shirted ICE agents, descended on 7 poultry processing plants in Mississippi arresting 680 Latino workers. At least one American citizen was tazed and cuffed, before being released. No employers were charged.
 Their children were terrified after coming home from school to empty houses or being locked out because their parents were detained by ICE. They sobbed as they waited for word when or if they would see them again. The ICE-caused trauma will last forever.
 These raids, whose footage Trump’ll use in campaign ads, are an act of state terrorism, aimed at scaring Latino communities throughout America. Coming just days after the El Paso massacre, driven by Trump’s hateful words, has intensified Latinos’ sense of vulnerability.
 The largest single-state workplace sting ever won’t be the last if Trump has his way.
 We cannot allow Trump to turn us into a version of Nazi Germany or condone taxes being used to wage war against brown and black people. Congress can no longer look the other way. It must do its job and start an immediate impeachment inquiry.
