After rejecting no fewer than six bipartisan deals to protect Dreamers, President Trump is still looking for a way to rile up his anti-immigration base.

Now he’s suggesting that funding intended for America’s military be cut in order to pay for his wasteful border wall.

Add your name now to tell Trump: No, you can not use the military budget to pay for the border wall.

Trump has proven to be an unreliable and unstable negotiating partner who doesn’t understand complex immigration issues and isn’t interested in working together on real solutions. If he was, he would have helped us pass a bipartisan compromise to address the DACA crisis, which he created himself by ending the program.

The military budget’s purpose is to operate, equip, and pay our Armed Forces. Trump can’t just decide to use it for a different purpose — that’s not how government appropriations works. That money is set aside for our troops and that’s what it should be used for.

Sign my petition to tell Trump that he can’t divert money from our troops to pay for the border wall.

If the President is really intent on stepping up immigration enforcement, he shouldn’t take it out on DACA recipients. These are inspiring young people who are contributing to our communities and our economy. They just want a chance to give back to the only country they have ever known.

I won’t give up working towards a solution for them, no matter what the President says.

My best,

Dick Durbin
