Make a Call for Dreamers Today!

We have a Time-Sensitive ACTION this morning. Please see national Indivisible’s message with detailed information below.
  • Call our senators (and keep calling them): They need to hear our voices. Over 80% of the American people want Congress to pass a law that puts American Dreamers on a clear path to full citizenship. Tell our Democratic Senators that they need to stay strong and not cave on any of the White House’s outrageous demands.
Senator Patrick Leahy: (202) 224-4242
Senator Bernie Sanders: (202) 224-5141
Suggested call script:

Caller: Hi! My name is [name] and I’m calling from [part of state]. I’m calling today to tell [Senator] that I expect [her / him] to vote no on any immigration legislation that would make changes to legal migration or diversity visas. Protecting Dreamers is crucially important, but we can’t let Trump use them as a bargaining chip for drastic, permanent changes to legal immigration that serve his racist vision of who “deserves” to come to America.

Staffer: Thanks for calling. [Senator] is waiting to see what proposals come to the floor this week before [she / he] decides how to vote; however, [she / he] is very intent on finding a compromise that will permanently protect Dreamers from deportation.

Caller: It’s important to me that we protect Dreamers, too, but Trump wants to impose a family ban and build his ridiculous border wall in return for those protections. We should not have to pick between some immigrant families and others; [Senator] should hold strong against these Republican efforts to undermine our immigration system in service of Trump’s racist policies.

Staffer: I’ll pass along your thoughts to [Senator].

Caller: Please do, and please take down my contact information so you can let me know what [Senator] decides to do.
