    Your voice of reason is still needed against the Trump Wall & for permanent solution for DREAMers!

    Feb. 4, 2019

    Hope you enjoyed and survived Super Bowl LIII in the ATL!  There was a lot of excitement and plenty of things to do during the last week.  As we get back into our regular routines this week, please take a moment to take some action.
    Please take the time to call our U.S. Senators and remind them you are still following this and you do NOT want a border wall.   In addition, we do need permanent fixes for our DREAMers and TPS folks in the negotiating process for the government funding debate.  YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED!

    Be careful with the weather these next few days!  Check with your local weather on updates.
    There was agreement for re-opening the federal government last week and with your support, President Trump got ZERO funding for his border wall pet project.
    Please take the time to call our U.S. Senators and remind them you are still following this and you do NOT want a border wall.

    2019 Trump Shut Down & NO Border Wall!

    January 23, 2019

    We continue with no agreement to re-open the federal government.  Some federal workers are working without pay and some are indefinitely furloughed as the #TrumpShutDown continues.  Federal workers face their second paycheck not being there on Friday.
    Despite the fact that he had two years of Republican controlled Congress that did not fund his pet project of the border wall, he now insists it is a “crisis”.  Despite the fact that the president has repeatedly promised that Mexico would pay for the wall, he now want us to pay for the wall.  Despite the fact that national security experts say the wall will not solve our immigration problems, the president insists on demanding funding for it.  He has clearly not demonstrated the capacity for leadership. Recent polling indicates that the President is losing this argument and is blamed for the #TrumpShutDown.
    Law enforcement officials call on an end to the shutdown without the wall.  They also urge for commonsense immigration reform and commonsense border security that would be more effective than a wall.  Read that here.
