You will receive a call from 337-660-2661 shortly to be connected to the office of a key Democratic Leader (Rep. Pelosi, Sen. Schumer, Sen. Leahy, & Rep. DeLauro).
Hello, my name is _______. I’m calling to urge [MOC’S name – Rep. Pelosi, Sen. Schumer, Rep. DeLauro, Sen. Leahy] to use their leadership to propose and pass a Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill for Fiscal Year 2023 that significantly cuts funding for ICE and CBP. Congress failed us this year by shamefully sacrificing the well-being of immigrant communities and passing a bill that increased funding for detention, enforcement, and border militarization. That was unacceptable!
Fiscal Year 2023 is this Congress’ last chance to put forth an appropriations bill that reflects our values as a country. Congress should be significantly cutting ICE and CBP funding and investing in real community needs, including community-based support services, affordable housing, community healthcare, and environmental protections.
