Dear 5849376,

Call your Republican senator: End the shutdown now

The Senate is planning to vote on two bills to end the Trump-McConnell government shutdown today.1

One would reward Trump's hostage taking. The other, which already passed the Senate unanimously in December, would re-open the government with no racist strings attached.

Call Sens. Grassley and Ernst before this vote to demand that they support clean legislation to reopen the government and refuse to pay Trump's wall funding ransom. Click here to start your call.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is so committed to propping up his Party's fragile racist leader that he is pushing for passage of the first bill, which would give relief to federal workers and temporary relief to Dreamers and people with Temporary Protected Status holders in exchange for billions for Trump's border wall and thousands more deportation agents. The bill has no chance of passing in the House of Representatives – voting for it would prove allegiance to Trump's racist regime without helping reopen the government at all.

The second bill would simply end the shutdown and extend budget negotiations to February. It already passed the House, and passed the Senate unanimously in December.

We need to make it clear to every Senate Republican that people aren't bargaining chips and passing legislation to end the shutdown by supercharging Trump's racist agenda is unacceptable. Trump and McConnell created this crisis. Call to make sure Sens. Grassley and Ernst push for solutions to end it without creating another one.

Call Sens. Grassley and Ernst: Vote yes again on clean legislation to reopen the government and extend budget negotiations to February. Click the link below to start your call:
