Donald Trump and the Republicans have just shut down the government in order to push their painfully bigoted, anti-immigrant agenda. They are rejecting an overwhelmingly popular bipartisan bill to protect thousands of Dreamers from the immediate risk of deportation and fund essential services such as the Children's Health Insurance Program and funding relief for communities still without clean drinking water after natural disasters.
Make no mistake: Despite now blaming Democrats, Trump and the Republicans bear full responsibility for the government shutdown. They control Congress and the White House! They've refused to set the overall spending levels this year, jeopardizing vital programs over their insistence on an $18 billion, unnecessary, and unpopular border wall.
Join us as we and our allies across the country send Republican senators and representatives a clear message: Pass a clean Dream Act and end this #TrumpShutdown now! We tell our neighbors just what's at stake so we can all tell our members of Congress and the local media that this mockery must end immediately! We'll make it clear that we hold Republicans responsible for this #TrumpShutdown and that we demand that they pass a clean Dream Act, fund CHIP, and pass a spending bill to fully fund the government.
