As you know, our Supreme Court upheld our President's Muslim ban yesterday, and though that might sound like the last word, it's really not, because Congress can choose to restrict our President's power to discriminate against people he doesn't like. Congress legislating and the Executive branch executing; what a novel idea! Hence the Friends Committee on National Legislation helps you tell your Congressfolk to rescind our President's Muslim ban. Surely Congress will be all over this like white on rice, right? Actually, they've held exactly zero hearings on our President's Muslim travel ban since he put out his first one right as he was taking office, though they sure have devoted a lot of time to figuring out exactly how hard to screw families crossing the border and exactly how to hold DACA reauthorization hostage to border wall funding. But, as the owners of government, we can make our will known. Indeed, we-the-people making our will known is the only thing that has ever done any good in America.
Meanwhile, the FCC's net neutrality repeal took effect on June 11, as you know, giving Congress 60 working days (such as they "work") to nullify the repeal with a "resolution of disapproval" under the Congressional Review Act. The Senate has already passed such a resolution, and now it's up to the House; Stop the FCC still helps you tell your House Rep to support the discharge petition that will force Speaker Ryan to bring the House version of the "resolution of disapproval" to a full House vote. Don't brook any silliness from your Rep that "it's a lost cause because the President will veto it anyway." He almost certainly will veto it, but you should still do the right thing! You should still send a message that you support freedom for Americans to go where they want on the internet, rather than "freedom" for corporations to censor and throttle websites and turn our internet experience into cable TV. And we should make the President defend his veto. If he can.
Finally, you've also no doubt heard that our President would much rather just deport undocumented immigrants without due process -- after all, it's not like any of them could be running from terrorism or anything! And it's certainly not like a strong nation gives everyone due process, even when it's inconvenient. And Congress, of course, is no better than our man-child President -- Rep. Goodlatte's draconian anti-immigration bill failed last week, of course, and Speaker Ryan's "compromise" bill, get your surprised face ready, isn't much of a compromise -- it would allow our President to continue separating families at the border, cram immigrant families into our President's crony private prisons, and hold DACA reauthorization hostage to the President's border wall funding. He should ask Israel how well that wall is doing for them! Hence the ACLU helps you call your House Rep and demand they reject the Ryan "compromise" immigration bill.
