Dear 5849376,

Reject the politics of hate and fear

Republican extremists have seized on the terror attacks in Paris to promote militarization, isolationism and Islamophobia.

Republican presidential candidates have called for religious tests for refugees, and even suggested a national registry of Muslims in America.1,2 The House passed a bill, with the support of 47 cowardly Democrats, requiring the FBI director, the secretary of Homeland Security and the director of National Intelligence to personally sign off on every refugee from Syria or Iraq.3 Now some Republicans are even threatening a government shutdown if they can't close our doors to refugees.

CREDO activists, working with our progressive allies, made over 4,300 calls to key members of the Senate Democratic caucus, demanding that they hold a firewall in the Senate against passage of the House bill. But with a threat of government shutdown looming, we need to keep the pressure on Senate Democrats who might be willing to join Republicans in selling out our core values to score political points.

Make your voice heard TODAY. Tell Senate Democrats: Block any attempts to close our borders to refugees. Click here to get started with your call.

The Senate is our most powerful point of leverage to block Republican attempts to close our borders to Syrian refugees. Republicans cannot act unless Senate Democrats join and legitimize them.

As progressives, we reject the politics of hate and fear, and condemn those who peddle or cave to it; we reject any attempts to demonize Muslim, Arab or South Asian communities; and we reject any efforts to use terrorist violence tragedies to close our borders. We call on Senate Democrats to stand with us.
