MADISON - Yesterday I spoke at a rally on Donald Trump’s “national emergency” declaration on Friday. There were about 100 people in the Rotunda at the State Capitol, and it was an inspiring event.

Here are the remarks I gave:

Trump’s in Touch with his Inner Fascist

Please contact your members of Congress, both in the House of Representatives and the Senate, and urge them to take immediate action to pass a resolution of disapproval to overturn the national emergency declaration. Restrain this man before he goes any further down the hill toward authoritarianism.

And, on a related subject, please ask your members of Congress to vote to remove the citizenship question from the 2020 Census. Adding that question to the Census is aimed at intimidating undocumented immigrants and would lead to an undercounting, which would further disadvantage communities that have a high percentage of immigrants.

matt-rothschildWe have a Constitution. And it says to count all persons. Let’s insist that Trump follow the Constitution – on the Census and on the border wall. It’s pretty basic: Do we have a democracy or not?

Thanks for your activism.

Best,

Matt Rothschild
Executive Director
