This Week’s ToDos from Indivisible.org

Uncategorized
No more money for Trump’s deportation machine. Trump wants billions more in supplemental funding for detention beds, ICE boots, and deadly border enforcement. We’re hearing that Congressional Democrats have agreed to give him large portions of that money. Tell your member of Congress (MoC) you expect them to #DefundHate by voting no on any additional money for Trump’s cruel immigration policies. It’s time to pass the Dream and Promise Act. The markup (debate and amendment period) for H.R. 6 is scheduled for May 22, which means Democrats are on the cusp of finally standing up to Trump’s cruel, racist immigration policies. But there’s still a risk they’ll try to water down this bill in committee before it gets a final vote; make sure to call your MoC and tell them…

 Your 5 weekly to-dos from Indivisible.org

 Your 5 weekly to-dos The proper solution for a president who obstructs justice is impeachment. Whether it’s his actions to obstruct the Mueller investigation or his demands that members of his administration stonewall Congressional investigations, Trump has committed acts that should be addressed in an impeachment investigation. Write a letter to your MoC, or make a call, to make sure that your MoC knows you want them to support Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s resolution, H.R. 257, to open an impeachment inquiry. It’s time to take a stand on the Dream and Promise Act. House Democrats already delayed their markup of H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act, once before. Now it’s time for them to make passing this legislation in its current, strong form a priority. Members on the House Judiciary…

Demand that your MoC oppose giving Trump’s deportation machine more money. The administration doesn’t need billions more in DHS funding for detentions, deportations, and immigration enforcement agents. Your MoC should say no to Trump’s supplemental funding request. It’s time for your MoCs to support an impeachment inquiry. Rep. Rashida Tlaib introduced H.Res. 257 a little over a month ago to open an impeachment inquiry in the House Judiciary Committee in response to Trump’s obstruction of justice and corruption. You can write a letter to your MoC, or make a call, to make sure that your MoC knows you want them to support beginning the process of impeaching Trump. Tell your members of Congress to act on H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act. House Democrats need to pass H.R. 6…

Tell your MoC to support H.R. 1046 to lower prescription drug prices. Last Friday, HuffPost ran a story about how House Democratic leadership might cut a bad deal with Donald Trump to weaken legislation designed to lower prescription drug prices.

SB 7086     Voting Rights Restoration 

Uncategorized
Email or call your STATE Senator and urge that he or she vote NO on SB 7086 at the Senate Rules Committee meeting this Tuesday, 04/23/19, 2:00 pm. SB 7086     Voting Rights Restoration               This bill is an unconstitutional overreach that restricts the rights of returning citizens to vote after 64% of the electorate voted for passage of Amendment 4. It expands the definition of “completion of sentence,” and allows non-judicial private and government entities to create additional barriers to voting and de facto imposition of poll taxes.
