What to Say

Here are some talking points you should go over:
  • Trump’s executive order does nothing to help families. Children can still be separated from their parents and locked away in cages. Families seeking asylum still face the horror of indefinite detention. And there is still no clear plan to reunite the children that Trump separated from their parents.
  • The humanitarian crisis at our border is a crisis manufactured by the Trump administration and Republican inaction in Congress. Separating children from their parents or keeping those seeking asylum locked up indefinitely is against every American value.
  • It’s time for Republicans to stop using children as bargaining chips and end Trump’s inhumane immigration policies. It’s time for Republicans in Congress to support the Keep Families Together Act, and as your constituent, I expect you to vote yes.

Some Tips

Introduce yourself

Introduce yourself Introduce yourself, ask for the name of the person who handles immigration policy, and share where you're from so your senator or representative’s staff know that you're a constituent. (“Hi, this is Corina calling from Phoenix, Arizona. Can I speak to the person in your office who handles immigration?”) Say why you’re calling & what you want to happen State the reason you are calling and the specific action you want your representative to take — it’s time for elected officials to pass permanent legislation to keep families together. Share After your call, share how the call went on Facebook and Twitter and encourage your friends to reach out to their elected officials.
