Tell House Democrats: Join AOC and other progressive champions and demand a just border

Donald Trump is threatening ANOTHER government shutdown if Democrats don’t agree to include $5.7 billion in border wall funding in a long-term spending bill by February 15th, just two weeks from now. And a number of Congressional Democrats have indicated that they might be willing to give him at least some of what he wants.

But four new DFA-endorsed progressive stars in Congress -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) -- are pushing back.

They’re asking House Democrats to sign on to a letter demanding cuts to funding for family separation, child detention and other inhumane acts being committed in the name of Trump’s false border “crisis.”

If you want to see just and progressive treatment of immigrants and refugees at our border, tell House Democrats to add their names to this letter now.
