Hold Republican Congressional members accountable. Too many Republicans are hiding from the public – and we deserve to be heard. Plan to attend a local Republican Congressional town hall or call on your local Republican congressional member to host one.
There’s nothing more persuasive than a call from a congressional constituent. If you don’t live in a Republican congressional district, you can still call Democrats who do and ask them to get involved!

Write a letter to the editor and make your voice heard, urging your local, state, and congressional representatives to continue to protect progressive values for all. Remember: these are brief and each paper has it’s own submission guidelines.

California Democratic Party
For Immediate Release: Thursday, July 2, 2015
Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump’s Anti-Immigrant Slurs
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s statement that Mexican immigrants are “rapists” who are “bringing drugs [and] crime” is ignorant, hateful and idiotic.
Unfortunately he’s not alone in the Republican Party. Other Republican presidential candidates have been fomenting anti-immigrant fear and standing in the way of fixing our broken immigration system for years.
The Republican presidential candidates should not only condemn these statements, but also stand up for comprehensive immigration reform that delivers on America’s promise of fairness to immigrants.
