MADISON - Millions of us watched in horror this weekend as Donald Trump's reckless Muslim ban went into effect.

Innocent people--families who waited months for their visas, Iraqis who risked their lives helping U.S. troops, permanent residents who've lived in the U.S. for years--were detained in airports, or worse, deported.1

From coast to coast, massive, spontaneous protests showed that Americans won't stand for this. It's critical that we continue to speak out and show Trump that was only the beginning. Here are three things you can do today:

1. Call your member of congress and both of your senators. Our elected officials work for us, not Trump. They need to know that we are demanding they take action now to stop the draconian immigration actions by president Trump.

2. Donate to the National Immigration Law Center. There are a lot of great groups working to stop the Trump's actions and help those who have been detained and the National Immigration Law Center is one that you don't hear about enough. They're leading the legal resistance to the Muslim ban now and will be there to protect immigrants in the months to come. 

3. Find a protest near you! One of the rays of hope this weekend was seeing thousands pour into the streets and into airports to speak out for our values. But protesting can't be someone else's job, it's up to all of us.

These are dark times for sure, but we will get through this together.

Thanks for taking action,

wi-dist-maps-currentJudges rule today in GOP Election Rigging Lawsuit that districts must be redrawn and in place for November elections in 2018. Given their track record, the people have good reason to be concerned that Republicans may not follow the spirit and intent of the ruling.
