Call now: Congress is listening to us

Is this your brand on Milled? You can claim it.


ACLU Supporter, your calls are working yesterday, Speaker Ryan broke under massive pressure. He postponed the vote on his so-called "compromise" bill in a desperate attempt to get more support. Not only that, the House voted down Representative Goodlatte's even more extreme anti-immigrant bill.

You did this. The vote on Speaker Ryan's bill has been moved to next week, so now we need to keep calling so that this bill is dead on arrival. Make your call now.

Your efforts are making a difference, ACLU Supporter. We're fighting for the 2,300 children who were torn from their parents, and for the countless immigrant families who are seeking justice under the Trump administration's brutal mass detention and deportation machine.

Help us kill this bill. Even if you already called your representative, call again so they have no doubt what side their constituents are on.

En la lucha,


P.S. Want to do more for immigrant families? Here are some ways you can help.

Hi ACLU Supporter

Yesterday Donald Trump signed an executive order that he claims will end family separation at the border. The reality is that it may not stop separating families, will not reunite the thousands of families already torn apart, and aims to lock up even more children and families. Our movement is so powerful that we've managed to shame Trump into action, but this crisis is far from over.

Now Trump is calling on Congress to help him put children and their parents into mass prison camps indefinitely. This is his unspeakably cruel "solution" to family separation.

In the House, Speaker Paul Ryan is working to pass a bill today that would sanction mass immigrant family detention and give Trump a Congressional greenlight on his brutal anti-immigrant agenda.

You play a crucial role in our fight, ACLU Supporter. And our jobs aren't done make a call today to stop Congress from passing a law that puts families in prison camps.

Ryan's bill is designed to imprison families. It uses the end of family separation as a way to justify dismantling protections against the jailing of children and families in mass prison camps. It will turbocharge immigration enforcement and it contains Donald Trump's personal anti-immigrant wish list, border wall and all.

Here's what you can do right now: Today, the House is voting on Speaker Ryan's immigration bill. Just like Trump's executive order, this bill is holding immigrant children hostage to push forward intolerable family detention and a slew of other anti-immigrant policies that undermine the Constitution and due process.

Ryan's bill is NOT a solution, but it could still get the votes it needs to pass. Call your representative right now and demand that they vote against Ryan's bill.

ACLU Supporter, we're in this fight for the long-haul and we're fighting on all fronts: We're suing the Trump administration to bring a permanent end to family separation. We're giving Congress no choice but to block the Ryan bill and refuse to give one cent to immigrant-abusing agencies like ICE. We will bear witness to the horrors of family separation and detention. We will raise our voices so loud that this issue is kept front and center until every single family is reunited.

Thanks for staying in the fight,

Lorella Praeli
