The Call – #SaveChip #ProtectDreamers There is a bipartisan budget deal on the table that will fund CHIP and protect Dreamers, but the GOP Senate leadership isn’t backing it because they fear Trump will object. Despite repeated statements that he backs DACA relief, and significant Democratic concessions on funding border security and limiting immigration, Trump is now unwilling to take the heat of bucking extreme immigration hardliners and his alt-right base. It is long past time to fully fund CHIP and protect Dreamers with the proposed bipartisan compromise; the GOP deserves the blame for a shutdown if they cater to anti-immigrant extremists rather than governing responsibly. Your Action Call your senators tell them not to vote for any budget deal that doesn’t protect the Dreamers and save CHIP. Talking Points
This is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [ZIP].
I urge [Sen____] not to vote for any budget deal that doesn’t protect Dreamers and fund CHIP.
Children’s lives should not be a bargaining chip and there is already a bipartisan proposal on DACA. If the Senate will not vote because of the demands of extreme immigration hardliners, no budget should be approved.
