Action Items for this Week: Jul 15 – Jul 19

WASHINGTON REPORT FOR 7/15/2019

WASHINGTON REPORT FOR
7/15/2019

SPECIAL ACTION ITEM

The House of Representatives is expected to vote on impeachment sometime Wednesday afternoon or early evening. Congressman Al Green (D-TX) has filed articles of impeachment that must be addressed within two days according to the rules of the “privileged” process under which he introduced the legislation.

This is the third time Rep. Green has forced a vote on impeachment, but only the first time while the Democrats have controlled the House. It is unclear whether Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic leadership will try to stop the vote from happening.

For now, we’re asking all of our supporters to call Congress (listed below) and tell them to stop playing these silly games. It’s time for the Democrats to get over the 2016 election results. Our economy is booming, unemployment is at record lows for ALL Americans, and wages are rising faster than inflation. President Trump’s policies are working and it’s time for the Democrats to acknowledge our country’s renewed greatness!

Call to Action #1

Call your Senators (listed below) and tell them you do not want them to increase spending as the budget, debt ceiling, and spending talks take center stage this week (and likely the rest of summer). The message is simple: DO NOT INCREASE SPENDING! You can call your Senators with this message whether they are Republicans or Democrats.

Call Script

Hello, my name is [Your Name] and I’m calling from [Your City, State] to urge Senator [Elected Official’s Name] to vote against any increases in spending in any upcoming legislation, no matter if it’s included in a debt ceiling bill, or budget bills, or any legislation. Thank you.

Call to Action #2

Call your Senators (listed below) and tell them vote NO on S. 386, the Senate’s version of the House bill that, should the bill become law, it would remove the per-country caps for employment-based green cards and increase the share of family-preference green cards that each country could receive. The House version, H.R. 1044 has already passed the House. While President Trump is trying his best to put Americans first, the Democrats and some Republicans are working to undermine his efforts by increasing immigration rather than stopping illegal immigration and decreasing legal immigration. We are hearing that Intel Corporation is teaming up with some GOP lawmakers who support this to challenge Republicans that vote no in the next election. This is unacceptable!

Call Script

Hello, my name is [Your Name] and I’m calling from [Your City, State] to urge Senator [Elected Official’s Name] to vote against S. 386 and any other attempts to increase the caps for employment-based green cards. Right now is not the time to increase caps or increase immigration. Now is the time to put Americans and America first by securing our border and tightening existing asylum loopholes that are currently being exploited. American security and workers should be the priority for every elected official in the United States. Thank you.
