Use this as a sample message to give during your call:
"Hello, my name is [name] and I am a constituent from [City, State].
I am calling to express my concerns with the White House’s decision to declare immigration a national security emergency in order to bypass Congress and access funding for the border wall.
America does not need a wall to keep us safe and America most definitely does not face a national security threat at our Southern border.
I urge Senator/Representative _________ to:
1.) Push back on the national emergency declaration and funding for the border wall.
2.) Work with their appropriations colleagues to end the government shutdown, and
3.) Support practical and humanitarian solutions for immigration reform at our border.
Thank you for your time and consideration."
And this is important! Help us track the impact of this campaign by letting us know that you took action.
