We’re now officially in another Trump Shutdown. As expected, the Senate rejected the House bill containing nearly $6B for Trump’s border wall. McConnell didn’t even let them vote on the bill since it had no chance of passing. That means we’re now in a shutdown caused entirely by Trump’s childish demands for his border wall. Remember, the Senate has already passed a clean funding bill that would fund the government until Feb. 8, thereby averting a shutdown. That bill would pass the House, if Trump would allow it to move forward.
What you can do now:
If you have a Democratic member of Congress, make sure to thank them for standing up to Trump’s racist, harmful demands. Tell them that you have their back and to keep holding strong against any funding that goes to the wall.
If you have a Republican member of Congress, let them know that you understand exactly who’s to blame: Trump and Republicans who continue to enable him. They could have opened the government , instead of holding it hostage to Trump’s racist demands.
It’s important to let your MoCs know that you’re watching and will holding them accountable. Demand that they re-open it by passing a *clean* funding bill that doesn’t contain new money for Trump’s border wall or to cage families.
Call Your Members of Congress
Tell your MoC you want them to work to re-open the government by sending Trump a clean budget bill that doesn’t include money for his wall.
