Friday:  Reunite the Children

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 keep up the pressure on the Trump regime to reunite all children under five years old IMMEDIATELY, per the court order issued over a week ago.

Trump created a bogus “border crisis” where none existed and used it as an excuse to arrest and detain parents, then tear their children away from them – and lose track of them. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw last week ordered the administration to return all children under five to their parents within fourteen days. It’s been over a week and we’re not seeing reunification taking place. We need to see the children returned NOW with independent verification, since the regime can’t be trusted to tell the truth.

I need [the MoC] to make a bold public statement about this TODAY.

Saturday:  NO Indefinite Detentions!

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 publicly state today that the “indefinite detention” planned by the Trump regime is unAmerican, inhumane – and illegal.

Trump is continuing to double down on his bogus “crisis”, now insisting that he will create what are in effect concentration camps for detained immigrant families. This is morally wrong, cruel and racist. It’s also unnecessary and expensive. I need [the MoC] to state publicly TODAY that you oppose this move and will do everything in your power to fight it.

Sunday:  Due Process is our Constitutional Right

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 remind Trump that Due Process is a Constitutional right!

Trump is using a bogus “crisis” to demand that we take away the right to due process from migrants who present themselves at the border. He may not take away a right enshrined in the Constitution. If he is allowed to, any American could be falsely accused of not being a citizen and at that point they would lose the right to due process, their Constitutional right. This is the move of a dictator or King, which is why our founding fathers guarded against it. Tell Trump:  NO.

Denounce the Traitors:  Trump and the Republicans

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 denounce Trump and the Republican Senators who spent the Fourth of July in Moscow for the traitors they surely are.

Trump needs to meet with Putin alone, ie in secrecy. Republican Senators think making nice in Moscow is the best way to spend the Fourth, while the Senate Intelligence Committee – and the entire U.S. intelligence community – are clear that Russia attacked out election in 2016 to help Trump win. Only the deaf, dumb and blind can’t put this together:  Trump has sold our country out to Russia and the Republicans are joining him in his treason. Denounce them NOW.

Tell the Truth:  the Planet is Warming Dangerously

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 regularly state that global warming is an increasing and potentially civilization-ending danger.

With all the dangers that Trump and the Republicans present, from submission to Russia to dismantling all of our alliances and starting global trade wars, it’s easy to lose track of perhaps the greatest risk of all:  catastrophic global warming. I realize [the MoC] can’t pass legislation now. But please, don’t stop talking about the danger. Say something more about it today.

NO Supreme Court Pick By the Suspect of an Investigation!

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask the Senator to insist that Trump be denied the opportunity to replace Supreme Court Judge Anthony Kennedy while the president* is still under investigation.

No president in our history, until now, has been accused of taking office through illegal means. Trump has and the evidence of conspiracy shown so far is compelling. It is quite likely that his fate will eventually be decided by the Supreme Court. Trump must NOT be allowed to hand-pick the judge who will cast the deciding vote on his own guilt. Please make this case long and loud and fight like the devil to stop him.
