Tell Congress today: Fund human needs, not immigration enforcement and militarization

Thu, 04/27/2017 - 11:32

President Trump is threatening to shut down the federal government on Friday, April 28 if Congress doesn't approve $3 billion in additional funding to expand immigration enforcement and militarize our southern border.

Call your senators today at 202-224-3121 and ask them to fund human needs instead. Congress must pass a funding bill by April 28. Now is the time to tell them where you want your money to go.
