CALL SCRIPTS, WEEK OF JUNE 25, 2018

 2018-06-25

Trump created the family separation crisis, and his new executive order is not a solution. And like so many other Trump-created crises, Republicans in Congress are letting it happen.

Tell your representatives to Fight Family Detention – Kids do not belong in Jail!

Hi! My name is [name] and I’m calling from [zip code].

I’m calling today to thank [Senator Harris/Feinstein/Rep. Garamendi] for speaking out against Trump’s cruel zero tolerance policy and the resulting separation of children from their parents at the border. I do also ask that [Senator Harris/Feinstein/Rep. Garamendi] oppose any efforts to create family detention facilities.

This crisis was created by the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy and Trump can fix this with a phone call. Congress should not make this problem worse by voting to create family detention. I urge [Senator Harris/Feinstein/Rep. Garamendi] to oppose any legislation that would create family detention. Families belong together and free.
