- Remind our legislators that we expect them to protect us from a nonsense campaign slogan run amok.
- Remind our legislators that we expect them to protect the people, animals and environment from the harm this wall would cause.
- Remind our legislators that we expect them to protect our tax money from being wasted on a vanity project.
- Remind our politicians that when this debacle is recorded in the history books, they’re getting one chance to be described as the heroes who saved our system of checks and balances.
Together, we will say NO to Trump’s power grabs, NO to his racist border wall, NO to xenophobia, and NO to HATE.
Trump’s undemocratic power grab to secure his racist border wall is a direct attack on our democracy and immigrant families. Terrifyingly, this declaration could allow him to seize massive emergency powers to erode the foundations of our democracy, increase funding for more anti-immigrant policies, and launch more attacks on communities.
