  2. Trump just declared a national emergency so he can bypass Congress and build his racist border wall.

    Time is running out. We have to act fast. Sign our urgent petition right now demanding Democrats stand with immigrant communities and denounce President Trump’s manufactured national emergency.
    SIGN OUR PETITION

    Trump and the GOP shut down the government for 35 days, causing immeasurable damage to our economy, institutions, and families.

    They have vilified immigrant communities and persecuted refugees fleeing from violence.
    They have separated thousands of children from their parents, now unable to reunite them all.
    They have paraded around Washington throwing childish temper tantrums.

    And now Trump thinks he can get away with wasting taxpayer dollars to build a costly and unnecessary wall that’s rooted in racism and hatred? Not on our watch.

    Please, Lola — before it’s too late — sign our petition now urging Democrats to stand united against Trump’s selfish, childish national emergency.
    SIGN OUR PETITION

    The GOP can lie all they want, but, the truth is on our side: their immigration policies have nothing to do with safety and everything to do with demonizing immigrants.

    The time to stand up and fight back is NOW.

    In solidarity,

    Team Latino Victory

  3. I’m horrified that the President of the United States declared a national emergency in order to illegally divert funds to build his wasteful border wall — that’s right, the border wall that the majority of Americans oppose and that Congress will not pass.

    This un-American act sets an extremely dangerous precedent. President Trump should not have the option to declare an emergency every time he doesn’t get his way.

    This is an absurd violation of the separation of powers and not the intended use of this executive authority. A national emergency is meant to provide relief after a natural disaster or catastrophe, not to help the President override Congress because he isn’t getting everything he wants.

    Add your name now and join me in telling President Trump that we won’t stand for his outrageous and fabricated national emergency declaration over his phony border wall crisis.

    While President Trump is moving toward this unconstitutional abuse of power, Democrats and Republicans passed a bipartisan compromise through Congress that rejected the President’s wasteful border wall and sent a clear message about what Congress intends when it comes to border security.

    Democrats and many Republicans agree that we should invest in smart border security and address humanitarian concerns, but there is no “emergency” and no justification for President Trump’s actions. That is not how our government is supposed to work, and we can’t stand for it.

    Sign on now to tell President Trump that you oppose his fake national emergency.

    I will keep you updated as we learn more, but rest assured that I will be standing up for all who believe in our Constitution and fighting back against these actions from President Trump.

    Thank you,

    [Senator] Patty [Murray]

  5. On Friday, Trump declared a “national emergency” at the U.S. border so he can grab federal funds to build his racist border wall.1 Trump’s actions are illegal, immoral, and unacceptable. That’s why tomorrow, on Presidents Day, we’re taking to the streets.

    Join the national day of protest this Monday, February 18, to send a clear message to Congress: TRUMP is the national emergency. Rein in presidential powers immediately, and block all funding for Trump’s racist border wall.

    This is an unconstitutional power grab, the likes of which this country has never seen.2 Trump’s manufactured “national emergency” gives him vast new powers to undermine our democracy and supercharge his white supremacist base. He’s now more able than ever to escalate attacks on immigrants, communities of color, Muslims, and Black and brown people.

    Congress can stop this. They have the power to revoke Trump’s declaration of emergency. Democratic and Republican members of Congress alike have already spoken out against Trump on this,3 showing that his political support on this issue is fading fast. Momentum is on our side. But Congress will only act if enough of us all around the country come together very quickly to demand it. That’s why Monday’s national day of protest is so important.

    Can you join or start a protest near you tomorrow, Monday, February 18, to demand Congress put an end to Trump’s racist and unconstitutional “national emergency”?

    Thank you for taking action.
