ACT NOW

ACT NOW! CALL YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS TODAY TO STOP FAMILY SEPARATION AND PROTECT IMMIGRANTS!

The House of Representatives is going to vote on two harmful immigration bills TOMORROW. Please urge your Representatives to VOTE NO to:

Speaker Ryan’s “Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018” (HR 6136)

Representative Goodlatte’s “Securing America’s Future Act of 2018” (H.R. 4760)

Both of these bills hold protections for immigrants hostage to drastic reductions to legal immigration, and eliminating protections for vulnerable children created by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA). Also, neither of these bills will completely stop the Trump administration’s inhumane and shameful family separation policy.

WHAT TO SAY:
My name is _______and I’m calling from [City and State] and I’m a voter in your district. I’m calling today to ask [Representative________ ] to vote NO on both the Goodlatte bill (HR 4760) and the Paul Ryan’s Border Security And Immigration Reform Act (HR 6136). These bills do not adequately protect Dreamers, and they fail to address family separation crisis at the border. They will undermine critical protections for asylum seekers, and unnecessarily gut legal immigration.
