Tell Your Senators: Oppose the wall and re-open the government

Donald Trump still demands a racist, ineffective and mind-bogglingly expensive wall on the U.S.-Mexico border — and has even shut down the federal government to accomplish it.

Enter the New Democratic House - the adults in the room. Speaker Pelosi has passed six spending bills that will re-open the government with no funding for Trump's bigoted vanity project.

As the shutdown drags on, Trump only digs deeper by claiming most of the federal employees who are not getting paid are "Democrats." This is not normal.

We can end this shutdown right away if enough Republicans join every Democrat in Congress to fully fund the government, without the outrageous $5 billion for Trump's border wall. The Senate passed identical legislation in late December.

It is time to put political partisanship aside and end the government shutdown. The border wall is divisive, expensive and outrageous - and it is unspeakably cruel to hold federal employees hostage because of it. You must stand up to Donald Trump now.
