Hate group collaborators

Once he corrupts the Judiciary, Trump won’t be asking for permission…Vote “No” on “Chad” for the 9th circuit!

chadWhile we’re busy fighting for the kids with phone calls, protests and rallies, Donald Trump has nominated Chad Readler, the Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice Civil Division, a key defender of the family separation policy for a lifetime judgeship.

Chad-ReadlerChad’s creepy frat-boy vibe comes with equipped with a long history of advocating for harmful, discriminatory policies. Besides the separation policy, since joining the DOJ, Chad has enthusiastically worked to advance the transgender military ban, the termination of DACA, the Muslim travel ban, and the baseless assertion that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional. A close colleague and defender of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, he has a hostile record toward health care, America’s public schools, voting rights for communities of color, LGBTQ rights, workers’ rights, immigrants, and women’s and reproductive rights. Here’s a more in-depth look at his destructive romp through American values.

Readler’s extreme positions, many of which contravene federal legal precedent, have prompted Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) to refuse to support Readler’s nomination, which should be enough. But blue-slip turncoat Senate Judiciary Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA), has announced he no longer cares about his former well-documented values and is allowing unqualified, dangerously extremist nominees like Readler to come to a vote. What a great legacy, Senator Grassley!

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Senator [__] to vote “NO” on Chad Readler if he makes it to a vote.

Also, if you have minute, add calls against these guys too.

Rinse and repeat on “NO” for Ronald Mortensen- hate group member and fox looking for a henhouse.

Sharry

The Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration’s purpose is to aid refugees and victims of conflict escaping persecution. So the Trump administration has scraped up the most extreme anti-immigrant they could find – Ronald Mortensen, a fellow with the anti-immigrant/white supremacist hate group Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), to serve as that bureau’s Assistant Secretary of State. Mortensen has been affiliated with CIS since 2009 and even founded another anti-immigrant group in his home state of Utah. Unsurprisingly, Mortensen has repeatedly espoused the lie that immigrants are criminals, even referring to immigrant populations in sanctuary cities as “illegal alien murderers, identity thieves, gang bangers, and other assorted thugs.”

Prominent immigration lawyer Greg Siskind said that this nomination shows that Trump was “getting bolder” in furthering his anti-immigration agenda, writing on Twitter that the “president has put a lot of extreme anti-immigrants in key positions, but has been careful not to put them in jobs requiring Senate confirmation.”  Until now.

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [___] to tell Senator [___] to reject Ronald Mortensen’s nomination for Director of the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration. Mortensen is an anti-immigrant bigot whose racist views make him utterly unfit to oversee refugee settlement in the US.
