Phone Scripts 9.20-9.23.2018: Reunite ALL of the Children + More

We learn more children remain in custody. And there is no route toward freeing those children.

We know the current president speaks without thinking; tweets without thought.

We see that the rush toward confirmation of Kavanaugh leaves too many unexamined documents, unanswered questions.

There is so much to talk about. It’s time to call.

Reunite ALL of 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 insist that ALL of the migrant children separated from their parents be reunited. NOW.

More than 400 children are still separated from their parents. The administration* is trying to be rid of the Flores Settlement, which keeps kids from being held for more than 20 days. And they’re incarcerating more children as we speak. Please keep up the pressure! Reunite ALL of the kids!

Give Trump a Psychological Exam!

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 for an independent physician to give Donald Trump an exam to determine his mental and physical health.

We have credible allegations, most recently by the dean of American political reporters, Bob Woodward, that the president* is unstable. He has been examined by two doctors, both of them suspect, who have read reports that appeared to have been written by Trump himself (the first of which was later disclosed to, in fact, have been). We have had no reliable evaluation. Meanwhile, unelected officials attempt to keep Trump from causing us all grievous harm. This is completely unacceptable.

If a CEO behaved the way Trump does, the board of directors would be obligated to intervene. Any director who did not would be liable. Just so is every Representative and Senator derelict in their duty if they do not call out the need to assess Trump’s health. No matter what Republicans will or won’t do. What’s right for Democrats to do? The answer is obvious. Demand an examination.

Trade Wars Hurt Americans!

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 oppose Trump’s reckless trade war with China.

The latest round of tariffs will hit Americans as the Christmas season begins. Over time, the tariffs will damage our economy, our companies and Americans directly. Anyone who thinks China will back down should think again. In this insane war, it is us who will lose. Please demand that Trump stop the tariffs now.

We Need a Full 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 continue to demand a full and complete investigation of the allegations of assault placed against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Professor Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when she was fifteen years old are credible and deserve a full hearing, not a Republican hatchet job. A seat on the Supreme Court lasts a lifetime as wields immense power. It must not go to someone who committed serious criminal acts and lied about them. It must not go to someone whose character is seriously tarnished. And it must not be handed over quickly without any serious attempt to know the truth, which is exactly what the Republicans are pushing.

Keep fighting for a full investigation!!
