so really in a litigation stage, but here are some key talking points for those interested:
Meredith Dodson
19:17
• The Trump public charge regulation is brutal, dangerous and unlawful• It’s about sending one message: if you’re not white and you’re not wealthy, you’re not welcome• We support efforts to block it, through the courts and in Congress• An injunction would protect millions from real, lasting harm• We don’t know when we will receive a decision, so we also urge Congress to act• We’re running out of time to protect immigrant families

Jamy Rentschler
01:04:27
Is it as effective to communicate with the aids via email compared to via phone?
Meredith Dodson
01:05:02
I think email (directly to the appropriate aide) better/more likely to get to them generally -- they are so often booked in meetings
Meredith Dodson
01:05:43
if you need help confirming the right email address, let me know
Jamy Rentschler
01:05:57
Thanks, Meredith!
Meredith Dodson
01:06:48
Can look up aides and how to email here too http://capwiz.com/fconl/dbq/officials/
Meredith Dodson
01:09:29
So our homework: make expanding the EITC/CTC THE top priority for any tax deal this year They are starting these negotiations now And will be decided behind the scenes, so we need leadership to hear from their peers
