Call Your Representative: Stop Speaker Ryan's Anti-immigrant Bill

Demand a NO vote on Paul Ryan’s bill, which will continue separating families and turbocharge immigration enforcement.

Speaker Paul Ryan has introduced a bill that claims to address our outcries against family separation and this administration’s widespread abuse of immigrants – but it does no such thing. This is an inhumane, unjust bill that offers more harmful immigration policies disguised as “fixes” for the crises that the Trump administration created.

The Ryan bill’s answer to family separation is to cram immigrant families in prison camps. It does nothing to address Attorney General Sessions’ “zero tolerance” policy on prosecuting asylum seekers. It fails to put a check on the government’s authority to separate families. It militarizes the border. For Dreamers, the bill offers extremely limited legal protection, which could be stripped at any moment if Trump’s border wall loses even a penny of its allotted $23 billion for the border wall and further border militarization. The bill would hold Dreamers hostage in exchange for Trump’s border wall and anti-immigrant wish list.

While the House is voting on two anti-immigrant bills, Speaker Ryan’s bill poses a particular threat because it masquerades as a compromise – that’s why we have to shut it down immediately.

Trump is responsible for separating families and ending DACA. He created these moral crises – and is now using young immigrants and families to force Congress to give him all the cruel anti-immigrant measures he wants. Don’t let our representatives give in. Call now to tell them we won’t stand for this brutality.
