Action alert: Oppose the “border surge”

ACTION: Call Your Senators TODAY, Monday, June 24th, to oppose the Corker/Hoeven “border surge” amendment

Call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 or find your Senators’ direct lines at http://www.senate.gov.

At 5:30 pm today, the Senate is expected to vote on a new version of the bipartisan immigration reform bill, S.744, which will include all amendments made thus far, as well as the Corker/Hoeven amendment – known as the “border surge” — which would increase border security funding in the bill from $8 billion to over $46 billion, double the number of border patrol officers, and dramatically increase militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border.
