Phone Scripts 10.1-10.3.2018: Stop Incarcerating the Children & more...

Children and their families remain separated. The current administration continues to create chaos and laughter. The highest court in the land may be the final destination for a man who clearly has some impulse control issues - anger, drinking, gambling.

Enough is enough.

Stop Incarcerating the Children: Reunite and Place Them!

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 and that the Federal Government stop filling camps with migrant children.

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 hundreds of children rather than placing them in foster homes or shelters. They are having trouble placing them with families because of their own policy of arresting undocumented immigrants who would adopt them, resulting in much longer stays until placement and more damage to the children.

Please keep up the pressure! Reunite ALL of the kids who have been separated! Find homes for the others NOW.

Protect Rod Rosenstein

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 continue to demand legislation protecting Rod Rosenstein be passed. The Republicans won’t do it, but make them defend their decision by stating what we all know: the Russian attack stole the last election and Trump is trying to avoid prosecution. Mueller’s investigation must be protected – and so must Rosenstein.

Monday: Demand for a Fair FBI Investigation

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask that the Senator demand a complete and fair investigation from the FBI, not the sham that the White House has ordered.

Without a full and proper investigation at the FBI’s discretion and without limitations set by the White House counsel – the same that is shepherding Kavanaugh’s investigation – the investigation will be a sham. And with that, any nomination will be illegitimate, tainting any and all decisions the court reaches as long as Kavanaugh were to serve. This must not happen for the sake of our country. DEMAND an open and fair investigation. TODAY.

Tuesday: Brett Kavanaugh’s Tirade Disqualifies Him

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 state that Brett Kavanaugh’s ranting, crying, partisan tirade alone disqualifies him from sitting on the Supreme Court. In fact, it disqualifies him from sitting as a federal judge, period.

No one in their right mind can possibly believe, after Kavanaugh’s tirade, that he can or would make judgements impartially. He is plainly and thoroughly prejudiced, steeped in insane conspiracy theories and prone to hysteria. His temperament is the opposite of what anyone should want to see in a judge. No one facing him would be judged impartially or fairly. He must NOT serve on the Supreme Court. And then he must be REMOVED from the Federal bench.

Wednesday: Kavanaugh Was Lying

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 continually state that Brett Kavanaugh’s performance on Thursday was shot through with lies, big and small.

Kavanaugh lied about the meaning of terms in the public lexicon: “Devil’s Triangle”, “boofing” and so on. Kavanaugh lied about his slut-shaming of Renate Schroeder. Kavanaugh lied about his drinking. Kavanaugh lied that witnesses had claimed “he hadn’t done it” when they had in fact said, “I don’t recall”. When he wasn’t lying, Kavanaugh was avoiding answering questions. From all of this we can conclude that Kavanaugh was indeed lying when he stated that he did not assault Christine Blasey Ford.

Background:

NO on the GOP Tax Scam

Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent from zip code______ and a member of Indivisible. I’m calling to ask Senator to vehemently oppose the GOP Tax Scam 2.0.

The House just passed another round of tax cut give-aways to the rich. Last year’s tax scam was an abomination. This just adds to the damage. It must die in the Senate. Period.
