Stop the national emergency order

Let's call on Congress to stop this fake national emergency and push back against this racist and anti-immigrant policy. Congress should vote to pass the resolution to terminate the national emergency Trump is using to divide us for political purposes.

Why is this important?

This national emergency is a way to push forward bigoted policy that has no grounding in reality. There is no humanitarian crisis at the border. This is simply a political ploy to rile up folks against a perceived racist threat. Congress has to push back and make sure that this national emergency declaration does not take effect.

Trump calling a national emergency order is an executive power grab, attempting to bypass any legislative oversight against Trump's anti-immigrant policy. Congress can pass a resolution (update: this was introduced in the House by Rep. Joaquin Castro on February 22) to stop this national emergency. Show your support and sign this petition saying that this trumped-up crisis cannot continue.


Reasons for signing

  • Today is final vote to remove Trump and Jared Kushner and Mitch McConnell out of the Oval Office and Capital Hill. Five detainees have been cleared for release in a process involving six separate US intelligence agencies, yet they remain at the prison. Why? Because President Trump simply refuses to let anyone leave Guantánamo under his watch.
  • To attempt to change the impeachment many people died in an error of a retaliation missile...outrages
  • To Trump, It's a waste of money and it won't work. You are creating a humanitarian crisis that is in your mind.
