Since Oregon made voter registration automatic, voting by younger folks and folks of color has increased more there than anywhere else in America. I still know folks who'd say that's a bad thing, but saying so is a way of confessing intellectual bankruptcy, since you can get anyone to vote your way with good works and good ideas. 10 other states (plus the District of Columbia) have adopted similar legislation that automatically registers you to vote (unless you opt out) every time you visit the DMV or get other state services, hence Roots Action helps you tell your state legislators to make your state the next to adopt automatic voter registration. I don't know how much automatic voter registration will fight efforts like the nefarious "Interstate Crosscheck" database (with which states deregister voters with similar names to voters in other states, without proving they've done anything to deserve it!), but I do know that getting more voters registered more easily is a good thing for democracy and for America. So let's get to it.
Meanwhile, the Friends Committee on National Legislation helps you tell Congress to pass H.R. 3440/S. 1615, the DREAM Act -- and without any of Mr. Trump's demands, like border wall funding and "sanctuary city" defunding. The DREAM Act would let our government grant permanent resident status to certain folks who immigrated here as children -- and thus had no say in coming here! -- and thus have virtually no relationship with their nation of birth, such that deporting them to that nation would very likely be an act of cruelty. The DREAM Act would set additional conditions for these folks: they'd have to have been here continually for the last four years, be clean of criminal or terrorism charges, and meet certain educational requirements. The bill would also instruct our government to cancel deportation of folks who previously received DACA status, and would even prevent our government from leveraging someone's DACA/DREAM Act status to get them to rat out other undocumented immigrants. Whatever one thinks of corporations using immigrants to lower wages, I think only the rage-addled would oppose this bill.
