Paul Ryan, in a statement that instantly made us think of Nazis, would like women to make more babies to strengthen our economy.
Of course, the GOP has also voted against every bill that would make pregnancy, childbirth and the raising of children affordable, much less sending them to college without crushing debt. Just yesterday, Ryan and his ilk passed the #TrumpTaxScam, a bill that prioritizes corporations, which cannot have children, over everyday citizens who can but can’t afford to, while setting the stage for the destruction of our safety net that will harm children as well as senior citizens.
So, instead of looking to the Nazis for economic answers, we have an immediate solution based on own American traditions… Immigration.
Let’s start now with the DACA/Dreamers, almost 800,000 already-grown people brought here by their parents as children, already educated in American schools, already fluent in English, already going to school, buying homes, in our military and hospitals, starting businesses, and paying taxes. Exactly what Paul Ryan says we need.
The alternative to allowing our racism and xenophobia triumph is a huge hit to our economy. So, if you know people who are unable to see the morality of helping the DACA kids, tell to support them for the economy. God, even the Koch brothers are saying we should do this. Hell has officially frozen over and it’s hosting skating parties.
The push for a clean Dream Act by Dec. 22nd continues!
#1 – Take 10 seconds and make this call
Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to urge Congressperson/Senator [___] to pass a clean Dream Act before you go home for the holidays.
More script if you need it: Every day that Congress fails to act, 122 Dreamers lose their DACA status and become deportable. A vote on a continuing resolution without the Dream Act, is a vote to deport Dreamers. Please pass a clean Dream Act this December.

If you relatives and friends living in the CA, CO, FL, MI, NV, UT, VA, or WA districts below, please reach out to your representative and urge them to publicly state that they will not vote for a spending bill that doesn’t include a permanent legislative fix for Dreamers (as Rep.
