Fight Back on Schumer's Dreamer Compromise
What can you do? Call! Show up! Read below.
This is an excerpt from Indivisible ...
...this afternoon, Senator Schumer led the Senate Democrats to surrender. The House voted and passed their version just a few hours later. For his caucus’ vote, Schumer got absolutely zero protections for Dreamers. Instead, McConnell made a pinky-swear promise (no one's ever broken one of those, have they?) to Democrats that if they just voted for what he wanted, then he’d try to take up the Dream Act in the next few weeks.
Why Democrats made this deal is baffling to us...
We’re not sure where this deal will land or whether McConnell or Trump will hold up their end of the bargain (we’re not holding our breath). But until we know more, here’s what you can do to take action:1. Make a call - Visit DreamerPledge.org to read our latest analysis. Find out if your members of Congress (MoCs) are Dream Heroes or Dream Killers. Use our Dream Hero call script if to thank your Senators voted to protect Dreamers.

You’ll be prompted for your zip code and immediately connected to one of your Senators. Call back again and you’ll be connected to your other Senator!2. Show up - Visit your member of Congress’ (MoCs) offices this week. They need to not only hear from you, but they need to see you too! They need to know how you feel about this “deal.” Rally at Chuck Schumer's house at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn tomorrow, Tuesday January 23 from 5:15 to 6:30pm.
