Tell Congress: Do not fund Trump's border wall

Trump-wall

During the Presidential election, Trump repeatedly promised to build a wall along the US - Mexican border and have Mexico pay for it.

Trump’s proposed wall is a horrible symbol of hate, is a ridiculous waste of money, and will do next to nothing to stop illegal immigration (which all numbers indicate has already dropped dramatically.)

But, whether you support the wall or not, the American taxpayer should not under any circumstance be asked to pay, advance, guarantee, contribute or lend a dime to the construction of Trump's proposed Border Wall.


And Trump's idea for an import tax to pay for the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border would actually hurt American consumers and workers – NOT Mexico. His even more recent idea to shut down the government over this wall is an even worse idea. The idea that we are wasting money sending the National Guard to the border is his dumbest idea yet.

But there is also hope with a new bi-partisan solution developed by Republican Sen. John McCain and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons that provide a path to citizenship for DACA recipients while shelving Trump's border wall.

Tell your members of Congress that the American people do not support funding Trump’s border wall on the backs of the American taxpayer, and to demand that all members of Congress vote against any measure, bill or request to appropriate funds for that purpose.
