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

WASHINGTON — In response to a vote in the United States Senate to revoke Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration, a coalition of more than a dozen organizations released the following joint statement:

“We’re proud that a grassroots outcry from every corner of this country helped push Senators to publicly condemn Donald Trump’s illegal power grab, and showed his emergency declaration for what it is: a dangerous attack on our democracy that proves how low he’s willing to sink to demonize communities of color and advance his anti-immigrant agenda. From the beginning, his national emergency declaration was a racist attack on the very foundation of our democracy, and an assault on the principle of separation of powers. Grassroots activism forced some Republican senators to find their backbones today, but it’s clear from the administration’s 2020 budget proposal, which includes massive increases in ICE and CBP funding and billions more for Trump’s harmful and wasteful wall, that the fight is far from over. We’ll keep up the heat until Congress reins Trump in, and until every immigrant in our country is treated with dignity and fairness.”

The Revoke Trump Emergency Coalition made nearly 80,000 calls and delivered more than 760,000 petition signatures to Congress demanding that it pass the resolution to revoke Trump’s emergency declaration.
