Call Congress Before Friday to Include DACA in Continuing Resolution

Today is a National Day of Action on DACA. Please see Call to Action below from our Metairie Indivisible friends and call your senators and representative TODAY!
 
 
DEMAND THAT DACA BE INCLUDED IN CONTINUING RESOLUTION SCHEDULED FOR VOTE ON FRIDAY!
------------------------------------------------------------------
To speak with the Washington, D.C. offices of both your Senators and your Representative, just call the following number 202-224-3121 and enter your zip code.
 
 
Reminders: Identify where you're calling from (town and zip code is fine) so they know you're an actual constituent. Be concise - the office will get through more calls that way. Be polite and don't argue with the staffer - they don't set policy.  If you get a voicemail, then leave a message. And if you get a busy signal -- call back later!

SAMPLE SCRIPT:
I’m calling to ask that DACA be restored by including the program in the Continuing Resolution that will be considered this week.  Dreamers, brought to this country as children, should be able to go on with their lives without fear of deportation.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why you should make this call:
 
Today undocumented youth all over the country are leading a campaign to demand that Congress stand for Dreamers.  Trump terminated the DACA program in September, calling it an amnesty and giving Congress six months to enact a new plan. The President wants stronger crackdowns on so-called sanctuary cities, funding to build his wall and an overhaul of the country’s green card system. These conditions are non-starters for Democrats. With the continuing resolution (CR) the Democrats have real leverage. Sixty votes are needed to pass the CR.  Without the CR, the government will shut down December 8. Let’s support the dreamers and get those phones ringing.

Thank you!
