Phone Scripts 7.26-7.29.2018: Reunite the Children NOW, Call Out the Surrender to Russia + More

There is a constant attack and retreat from our current president. We cannot predict what it will take for him to agree with himself that the Russians attacked our elections. He’s not two-sided, he’s erratic.

Yet, we need our Senators and Representatives to hold firm to their convictions - supporting families, refusing census questions on citizenship, and demanding that Congress Members speak up about this president’s war on children and trade.

Reunite the Children NOW

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand that the Trump regime finally comply with the court order to reunite all seized migrant children with their parents NOW and to house them under proper conditions.

The administration has been dragging its heels in complying with a court order to reunited the children torn from their parents’ arms. And hundreds of parents have been deported with no effort to reunite them with their children. It’s past time to have every single family reunited. In addition, children and adults are being detained under sub-standard conditions. This must end immediately. Reunited ALL of the children NOW.

Call Out the Surrender to Russia!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to call out the betrayal of our country by Donald Trump and his Republican enablers, who are in effect surrendering to Russia.

Not a shot was fired. Yet here we are, with Russia’s candidate in the White House doing their bidding while the GOP surrenders as well. Trump is betraying our country in what is tantamount to treason, while the Republicans stand by. I’m asking [the MoC] to call this out every. single. day.

Trump’s Trade Wars Are Harming America

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand an end to Trump’s trade wars, which are harming our country.

Trump doesn’t understand trade. Trump doesn’t understand economics. Trump hates our allies. So his trade wars are ignorant, spite-fueled and destructive. Americans of all kinds – not just farmers – are being harmed. Buying farmers off after damaging their business isn’t a solution (especially since the rest of us are paying for it). Trump’s trade wars must stop.

NO Citizenship Question in the Census!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand that the Census NOT include a question about the respondent’s citizenship.

The Trump regime is inserting the question to dampen participation and affect the drawing of voter district lines to their benefit. It’s nothing more than a cheat – which is all they know how to do. Furthermore, they lied about the justification for the question. It must not be included.

Demand to See ALL of the Paper Trail for Kavanaugh

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask [the MoC] to demand to see ALL of the paper trail of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and to hold exhaustive hearings.

There is ample reason to believe that Kavanaugh’s record will show that he would be nothing but a lapdog for the dictatorial ambitions of Donald Trump. Since Trump is under criminal investigation, this would be a disaster. Kavanaugh’s entire record must be available for the hearings and they must be exhaustive.
