WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

FYI – CREDO Action Co-Director Heidi Hess released the following statement in response to reports that Donald Trump plans to declare a national emergency to build a border wall:

“Our most pressing national emergency is that a racist autocrat occupies the White House. Trump’s desperate attempt to pander to his base by trampling on the Constitution is a new, dangerous low. The media and politicians should be perfectly clear about what this is: An unconstitutional power grab that threatens our democracy and escalates Trump’s attacks on immigrants, communities of color, Muslims and Black and Brown people.

Congress must immediately use its power to revoke Trump’s declaration and start rolling back the executive branch’s emergency powers. House Democrats will undoubtedly move forward right away. Mitch McConnell has already shown himself to be a spineless lackey for Trump’s dangerous agenda. We’ll soon find out how many congressional Republicans – if any – have what it takes to stand up to Trump when he threatens our democracy.”

CREDO Action, part of CREDO Mobile, is a social change network of over five million activists, sending tens of millions of petition signatures and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to decision-makers each year. CREDO Action members also participate in meetings, protests and other direct action for progressive change.
