URGENT: DEMAND legislation to override Trump’s executive order! END THE BAN ON TRAVELERS AND REFUGEES!
URGENT: Call your Democratic representatives in Congress and DEMAND legislation that would override Trump’s executive order and end the ban on travelers and refugees from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen!
Join with the thousands of Americans protesting at airports tonight around the country. The ban extends even to green card holders from these countries who attempt to re-enter the United States, leaving travelers stranded abroad. Fifty people have been detained at Dallas-FW International Airport. ENOUGH is ENOUGH. This is not what America looks like. This is not who we are. Let’s show them what democracy looks like!
Despite the stay won by the ACLU, the ban stands. While those travelers detained can not be deported, they also will not be released.
Action: Leave a voicemail with your rep tonight and call again on Monday.

Hi. I am [NAME] calling from [CITY]. I am calling to urge [REPRESENTATIVE] to support legislation overriding President Trump’s executive order banning refugees and immigrants from Muslim countries.
President Trump’s ban is based on hatred and fear. In the wake of Holocaust Memorial Day, I urge you to condemn his executive order and stand up for refugees and immigrants.
