We've been hearing a lot lately about the system of checks and balances that moderates power between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. We've seen those checks and balances in action this week as Federal judges weighed in on (and temporarily blocked) the President's Immigration Ban, which sought to block travel to the US from several Muslim countries, and halt entrance of refugees into the US for 120 days.
While this issue is currently being examined in the courts, it's important for all of us to continue putting pressure on the legislative branch (our representatives) to weigh in on this issue, as we cannot rely solely on the courts to keep the administration in check.
Today, we're asking you to take 100 seconds and use the guide we've created to find out where your Senators stand on the Immigration Ban. Tomorrow, we will provide a simple calling script that you can use to reach out to your Senators and weigh in based on what you find out.
