Any other president — Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama — would have been here, immediately, standing with us to rebuild. Any other president would have denounced —immediately —the white supremacy rally just outside his house. Any other president would have ensured that the children were already reunited with their families. At this point, some think any other president —any other! — would be an improvement. We know … we don’t want Pence, and we cannot take this guy any longer.
It’s been 166 days since Stoneman Douglas became a high school we had all heard of. It’s been months since parents and children were separated at the border - and for some, there is no reunion in sight. It’s 101 days until the midterm election is over.
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.
There’s a lot of noise. And that noise can distracts us from the important issues. Let’s all pay attention.
• The families are not reunited. • Congress is not working toward a sensible immigration policy, or toward helping the DREAMers. • The Supreme Court nominee remains at issue, especially since the current President’s involvement with Russia seems every more treasonous. • Congress is not addressing gun violence.
The Russians would like to talk with Putin critic and our former ambassador. And they would be happy to talk with their 12 military officers. Families remain separated. The president wants to appoint a man who lied to Congress about torture to the Supreme Court.
Do you find it hard to believe the government still has not reunited the families? How do you think the talk with Putin will go? Should we offer more respect to our allies, or our enemies? Do you want your Senators to say ‘no’ to the Republican President’s choice for Supreme Court? Your Representatives to defend the FBI?
Our future depends on us all. Make your calls today!
