  1. “Make Your Reps Represent You”

The border policies we are seeing now were put in place by the Trump administration and that administration has the power to change them. Many of us have congressional representatives who are enabling and supporting this administration in it’s cruelty to families and children.

Click here to make a call.  Ask them to co-sponsor the Keep Families Together Bill (Feinstein),  vote no on Ryan & Cruz bills & pressure Trump, Sessions and DHS Secretary Nielsen. Call and Tweet at Dept of Homeland Security, @SecNielsen 202-282-8495.
