Mon – 2/11: Nationwide call to action from Indivisible – Call on the wall issue today! Ring their phones off the hook.

Action – “But I’ve already done it!” Do it again today!

Talks are stalled, but it looks like the Dems are waffling on a $2 billion “partial wall” compromise with our tax money.
Option #1:  We just dig a really big pit and thrown money into it, because that’s how effective a traditional border wall is…
Option #2: We pick what’s been behind the curtain since 2017, which is when Rep. Will Hurd, a Republican from Texas, put out a bill advocating a fiber-optic security system at the border, one that would also provide broadband access to nearby rural communities.

Fri – 2/8: Call today on the wall issue and make sure you’re heard.

Action – Call today! We are running out of time.

A conference committee made of members of both houses is meeting this week trying to create an agreement on funding for the Department of Homeland Security for this year. They might be “done” by Monday, sending a proposed bill to both houses for a full vote.

Why would you want to toss billions of dollars on a useless project that would have absolutely zero impact? Zero impact. … It’s not going to stop anything. They’ll tunnel.

Wed – 2/6: Trump and the wall…what’s really in it for him?

Action – Call today and every day until Feb. 15th against his stupid wall.

There are so many ways over, under and around his physical wall idea, and so much proof that neither drugs nor terrorists would be stopped by it, that there has to be another reason why Trump keeps insisting on this solution. We think he smells the thing that gets him up in the morning, prepared to spend another day doing his “loser” job…

Minimal Script. I’m calling from [zip code] and I want Rep./Sen. [___] to know in the upcoming negotiations to fully fund the government for 2019, we want four essential things: no wall, no taking border funding from domestic or social safety net programs, no cuts or blocks to legal immigration, refugee or asylum programs, and no wasting our troop’s time by militarizing the border. And a full public accounting of the contractors that met with him regarding wall construction.
