Federal Legislative Action: Now Is The Time For The Dreamers

The Senate Democrats have had two chances in the last 4 weeks to save our neighbors, this nation’s Dreamers, from deportation at the hands of Donald Trump. Despite some important efforts, they have failed, much to our great dismay and disappointment. On Monday, the Senate will finally take up the fate of the Dreamers. (Imagine if your future was up to what the Republican Congress had to say….)

Please call Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell to encourage them on in the fight for the Dreamers. NOW IS THE TIME. We can’t let them cave, we can’t let them give in to “compromises” on funding the wall, ending family migration and an even more draconian deportation sweep than the horrors we have already seen.

Script:  Senator __________, I am a volunteer with Olympia Indivisible, and I am counting on you to stand up this week in the Senate floor debate and vote for the Dreamers. At this moment in our nation’s history, nothing could be more important than saving these young people from deportation, so cruel, so heartless. Please do everything you can to pass a CLEAN Dreamers Act – no funding for the wall, no end to family migration, no end to the diversity lottery. Please work to find common cause with the few Republican Senators who actually care about the fate of the Dreamers. NOW IS THE TIME. Thank you for your long-time support for the Dreamers and for standing strong at this crucial moment.
