Dear Anne,

Stand with immigrants

When he ran for president, Trump promised to harass and terrorize immigrants. Now he is doing everything he can to fulfill those promises. Already he has banned Muslims and refugees, threatened sanctuary cities and criminalized millions of undocumented immigrants. His Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE) and Border Patrol agents are separating parents from their children, deporting innocent people and spreading fear in immigrant communities across the country.

Senate Democrats have the power to block funding for two key pieces of Trump’s hateful plan: his wall and his massive deportation force. We have to make sure they use it, with no hesitation and no compromise.

Republicans need 60 votes to appropriate any money for Trump’s wall or his deportation force. They cannot get to 60 without the support of at least eight Democratic Senators, which gives Democrats the power to stand up for immigrants, block Trump and act like an opposition party rather than a minority one.

Democrats must remember that the majority of Americans are against Trump and the Republican Party. They rejected Trump’s agenda of hate and xenophobia by almost three million votes. Seventy-seven percent of people oppose mass deportation of all undocumented immigrants. Sixty-six percent of people oppose the wall.

As stand-alone bills, efforts to fund Trump’s xenophobic agenda should be nonstarters. That is why Republicans will try to package funding for wall construction and immigration agents into bills that will be more politically difficult for Senate Democrats to block, like must-pass spending bills to keep the government running.
