Letters to My Representatives 1-17-2018

Here are today’s letters. The director of the It’s Time to Fight website is still trying to work through her cross-country move, so the site is thin on scripts, but there are still plenty of issues to keep in our elected’s minds. Please call or write to your electeds as often as you can. The fight to preserve our democracy and influence the path of our country is never ending.

Dear Senator Stabenow,

I ask that you support the DREAM and SECURE Acts. We still urgently need a clean DREAM Act; there has been no legislative movement to help the Dreamers since the summer. They are running out of time. Please act quickly. The SECURE Act is a needed protection for those who cannot return to their countries of origin because it could very well cost them their lives. Please act quickly on this.

I ask that you find a way to support the CHIP program and renew financing for it. Michigan is set to run out of funds by March 2018 and I do not want to see millions of children suffer because of politics.

I do not support Trump’s efforts to attach a work requirement to Medicaid and ask that you oppose this initiative in all ways possible.

I do not support Secretary Zinke’s policy change to increase off-shore drilling. Please oppose this decision in any way you can.

Please vote NO on the Jim Bridenstein nomination for NASA director. I have written to you about this before. He doesn’t have the qualifications and is a climate change denier.

Please do not allow Trump’s wall fixation to be attached in any way to a DREAM Act. They must be separate entities.

I seriously question Trump’s competency to be president. Please take any action necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of America in light of his inability to perform the job adequately.

I would also like to thank you for taking a stand against Trump and his racist, bigoted, sexist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, and xenophobic administration. Please continue to do so and demand that your Republican colleagues do so as well. I am tired of hearing the GOP comment that they don’t support or are concerned with Trump’s statements, but then never do anything about it. They have sold their souls to the political devil in an effort to pass legislation that meets their agenda but will damage this country. Please continue to be strong and fight for all Americans. We need more people like you to stand between us and Trump’s horrible ideology for this country.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Austin

 

Dear Representative Moolenaar,

I ask that you support the DREAM and SECURE Acts if they reach the House. We still urgently need a clean DREAM Act; there has been no legislative movement to help the Dreamers since the summer. They are running out of time. Please act quickly. The SECURE Act is a needed protection for those who cannot return to their countries of origin because it could very well cost them their lives. Please act quickly on this.

I ask that you find a way to support the CHIP program and renew financing for it. Michigan is set to run out of funds by March 2018 and I do not want to see millions of children suffer because of politics.

I do not support Trump’s efforts to attach a work requirement to Medicaid and ask that you oppose this initiative in all ways possible.

I do not support Secretary Zinke’s policy change to increase off-shore drilling. Please oppose this decision in any way you can.

Please do not allow Trump’s wall fixation to be attached in any way to a DREAM Act. They must be separate entities.

I seriously question Trump’s competency to be president. Please take any action necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of America in light of his inability to perform the job adequately.

I ask that you take a stand (which you have not yet) against Trump and his racist, bigoted, sexist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, and xenophobic administration. I am tired of hearing the GOP comment that they don’t support or are concerned with Trump’s statements, but then never do anything about it. They have sold their souls to the political devil in an effort to pass legislation that meets their agenda but will damage this country. I know you are one of those people and history will remember.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Austin
