Donald Trump is threatening to shut down the government because he can’t convince his Republican colleagues to vote for Border Wall funding – now he is attempting to bully Democrats into supporting his vanity project. Donald Trump has taken another unprecedented presidential action, threatening to shut down the government while his political party possess unified government control. Trump can’t convince his Republican colleagues to support his border wall but is trying to pin blame on Democrats. Donald Trump is threatening to furlough thousands of government workers during the holiday season. A government shutdown might sound like something abstract, but it has severe and real consequences for the thousands of government employees who will have their pay suspended and their jobs in question during the holiday season. Threatening hardworking government employees’ livelihoods to score political points is abusive and irresponsible. Importantly, Democrats shouldn’t be necessary to approving a Border Wall. Republicans control majorities in both Houses of Congress and hold the presidency, if they had the votes to approve border wall funding, they could simply vote to do so. But instead, President Trump is attempting to bully Democrats into voting for a package that even his own party can’t fully support. Add your name to tell your representatives to stand firm and refuse to fund Trump’s inhumane and ineffective Border Wall.

WATCH HERE—ABC News: “Special counsel eyeing Russians granted unusual access to Trump inauguration parties.” The presence of people with Kremlin ties in Washington for Trump’s inaugural celebration was first reported by The Washington Post. But the guest lists obtained by ABC News offer a new glimpse at the level of access granted to several well-connected oligarchs. Watch this story above and be sure to keep the pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who is trying to kill the bipartisan bill that would stop Trump from sabotaging Mueller’s investigation. We have the votes to pass this bill. That’s where you come in. Sign and share this petition demanding that McConnell stop standing in the way.
RSVP for a #FamiliesBelongTogether event near you. Tomorrow we take to the streets to tell Donald Trump and his administration to permanently end the separation of kids from their parents. Our demand is clear and not negotiable: Reunite families, end family detention, and end zero tolerance. All families belong together. Period. Tomorrow, June 30th, will be a “Families Belong Together” national day of action, with more than 600 events in all 50 states, and an anchor protest in Lafayette Square in Washington, D.C. Tens of thousands of people are expected to participate. The actions are focused on opposing the separation and detention of immigrant families. Right now, all the Republican bills to address this manufactured crisis are terrible and unacceptable. The Trump administration is saying the only options are separation or indefinite detention, but that is wrong. There is no reason for the vast majority of immigrant families to be prosecuted and kept in cages. They’re trying to trade family separation for jailing children in unlicensed facilities, which is unacceptable. RSVP for an event near you to put a stop to this. And help amplify our #FamiliesBelongTogether protests online by inviting your friends to join this campaign and call on Congress to end family separation and detention now.
Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announced today that he is retiring from the Supreme Court, giving Donald Trump the chance to replace a pivotal justice and dramatically shift the institution to the right. Today’s announcement and this week’s Supreme Court decisions showed us that both elections and courts matter. But with President Trump currently under federal investigation, there should be no confirmation hearing or vote on Justice Kennedy’s replacement until we see a full report from Special Counsel Mueller. Help save the Supreme Court by calling the following key Senate offices to tell them: “no SCOTUS vote until after the midterm election when Trump is no longer under federal investigation.” Lisa Murkowski (Alaska): call her 202-224-6665 & tweet her Susan Collins (Maine): call her 202-224-2523 & tweet her Jeff Flake (Arizona): call him 202-224-4521 & tweet him Share this rapid response alert with any and all friends, especially those in Alaska, Maine, and Arizona.
Add your name to put a stop to the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy of separating immigrant children from their families. Over the past week, new stories have emerged about children as young as 53 weeks being separated from their mothers — who are turning themselves at the border to federal officials in an effort to seek asylum. These stories have shined a light on the Trump administration’s new “zero tolerance” policy of ripping children away from their parents in order to discourage immigration. Under Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy, ICE, Border Patrol, and other Homeland Security agencies are taking the children of immigrants and asylum-seekers and sending them to faraway detention centers, no matter how young the child, how terrible their situation, or how unnecessary their separation. As these reports raise concerns about how we’re treating immigrant children who enter the country without legal status, we must raise our voices to put an end to this inhumane policy. Add your name to demand the Trump Administration stop separating immigrant children from their families IMMEDIATELY — and account for what is happening to all children in immigration custody.
Send a message to your senators now—pass S.2580 to stop the Trump administration from racially rigging our 2020 Census with an unnecessary, discriminatory question on citizenship. President Trump’s Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced his plan to add an untested, last-minute question about citizenship status to the 2020 Census. Experts say this would dramatically skew the final results—and with it, the resources and political power our communities can access. If the 2020 Census includes this politicized question on citizenship status, it’ll undercount communities of color and others who feel intimidated by Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric—by discouraging them from participating at all. And since we use Census data to draw legislative districts, it’ll amplify the harm of gerrymandering—keeping fair representation in government out of reach for too many of us. We should call this what it is: a politically-motivated attempt to racially rig the census. We need your voice to fight back. We deserve a fair democracy that represents us all—so we need to stop this by putting massive pressure on Congress. *** Dear Members of the U.S. Senate: Please support S.B. 2580 to ensure a fair and accurate Census. The Census requires that everyone within the borders of our country be counted, regardless of their citizenship status. But Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s decision to include a question on citizenship threatens that constitutional requirement, and politicizes this process. An accurate Census is essential in the redrawing of our congressional and legislative districts and budgeting decisions that impact our schools, hospitals, roads, and veterans. That’s why Congress must step in and pass legislation to prevent an unnecessary question on citizenship from muddling the results of the 2020 Census.
The White House arranged a meeting tomorrow where ‘highly classified and other information’ on the Russia probe will be shared with members of Congress. Yesterday, the White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that the participants will include House Intel Chair Devin Nunes, House Oversight Chair Trey Gowdy, FBI Director Christopher Wray, DNI Director Dan Coats, and DOJ’s Ed O’Callaghan. Guess what? NO DEMOCRATS are explicitly invited to this highly irregular and inappropriate meeting. Senator Minority Leader Chuck Schumer released a statement: “This meeting must be bipartisan in order to serve as a check on the disturbing tendency of the president’s allies to distort facts and undermine the investigation and the people conducting it.” We agree. We can’t let Trump and his team get away with this blatant abuse of power. Here’s what you can do to help hold Trump and his Administration Accountable: 🤝📈Help grow thisa resistance online.
