Hey Democrats....get your ass back to Washington

Dear N, We need to call the following Senate Democrats and tell them not to come home from DC until they fund the Department of Homeland Security and stop President Obama's illegal executive amnesty.
  • Sen. Joe Manchin, (D-WV): 202-224-3954
     
  • Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO): 202-224-6154
     
  • Sen. Joe Donnelly, (D-IN): 202-224-4814
     
  • Sen. Mark Warner (D­-VA): 202-224-2023
     
  • Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND): 202-224-2043
     
  • Sen. Al Franken, (D-MN): 202-224-5641
     
  • Sen. Angus King, (I-ME): 202-224-5344
     
  • Sen. Jon Tester, (D-MT): 202-224-2644

Last week, the new Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, held a series of votes to proceed to debate the House passed HR 240, which would fund the Department of Homeland Security and block the President's illegal executive amnesty. The measure which needs 60 votes to pass was defeated every time by Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats. They are willing to gamble the nation's security to protect President Obama's illegal action. 

The Senate is scheduled to be in recess next week for the President's Day holiday. We need to tell them NO RECESS FOR YOU until you DO YOUR JOB!

All of these Senators indicated before the President announced his action that they didn't think he had the power. Call them and remind them of what they said. Tell them to pass HR 240 before they come back home.

  • Sen. Joe Donnelly, (D-IN): “I am as frustrated as anyone that Congress is not doing its job, but the president shouldn’t make such significant policy changes on his own.” Press Release, 11/20/14, http://1.usa.gov/1rTcQBx
     
  • Sen. Mark Warner (D­-VA): “A big issue like immigration, the best way to get a comprehensive solution is to take this through the legislative process.”

  • Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND): “I’m disappointed the president decided to use executive action at this time on this issue, as it could poison any hope of compromise or bipartisanship in the new Senate before it has even started.”

  • Sen. Angus King, (I-ME): “And I also frankly am concerned about the constitutional separation of powers…The Framers knew what they were doing and it doesn't say if the president gets frustrated and Congress doesn't act, he gets to do, you know, what he thinks is important for the country.”

  • Sen. Jon Tester, (D-MT): Asked whether he would prefer the President not do it by executive authority, [Tester] replied, "I would prefer that Congress act, yes."
