Congress needs to pass a funding bill by April 28 of this year, or the government will shut down. And Donald Trump is using the budget process to ram through one of his most vicious policies.
Trump is requesting additional money (a “supplemental request”) in order to begin work on his border wall, expand his internal deportation force, and add more detention facilities to hold immigrants. This money will be used to rip apart American families, harm communities, and make us all less safe.
Paying for this will require cutting funding from essential programs that actually keep us safe and healthy—programs like education, housing, disease prevention, disaster response, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

“Hi, my name is [NAME], calling from [ADDRESS ].
I’m calling to ask is [REP NAME] is going to vote to approve money for the border wall and additional detention centers?
[If No] That is good to hear. Please thank [REP NAME] for supporting American families.
[If Yes] That is very disappointing to hear that [REP NAME] is supporting the fiscally irresponsible policies. This spending seems like a waste and can only hurt Ohio in the long run.
[If they do not know] I hope that [REP NAME] chooses to spend my money in a responsible manner. The wall is a gimmick, good for show but it will not be effective, but funding it will damage education, housing, disease prevention, disaster response, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Please take my information and contact me when [REP NAME] can go on record.
Thank you for your hard work answering the phones.”
