Here is a sample script. Feel free to ad-lib, and if you have a personal immigration story that you feel comfortable sharing, please add it! "I am calling to ask that the Governor clearly, unequivocally, and publicly denounce President Trump's executive order on immigration and refugees in its entirety: the travel and entry ban from seven majority-Muslim countries, the cessation of refugee resettlement for those fleeing Syria, the halt to all refugee admissions for 90 days, the promise to reduce refugee admissions overall, and the new religious preference for non-Muslim refugees. Governor Hogan portrays himself as a thoughtful, moderate Republican in step with the diversity of Maryland. It is time for him to show it and lead."
Take five minutes this morning to call your Maryland legislators and tell them that this is disgraceful. Find your state senator and delegates here: http://mdelect.net. Here is a sample script:
My name is ____________and I am a constituent of Senator/Delegate____________. I'm calling to share how upset I was to see that the Trust Act was not included in the leadership's state of legislative priorities to defend Marylanders' rights against President Trump's actions. As I'm sure you know, the Trust Act would prevent police officers from asking about people's immigration status and working with ICE to deport people. I want to urge Senator/Delegate ______________ to strongly push to include the Trust Act in leadership's priorities. Our Muslim and immigrant brothers and sisters must be protected from threatening hateful executive orders that threaten them.
