UPDATE (01/24/24): The Pentagon is officially out of money to aid Ukraine, leaving them unable to send ammunition and supplies to support Ukraine’s war with Russia. Without additional aid, Russia could win the war in a matter of weeks. Demand lawmakers stop playing politics and provide the much needed funds immediately.
As the war in Ukraine rages on, Congressional Republicans have decided to play politics in providing aid to the Ukrainian effort to thwart Russia. In late September, Republicans removed aid to Ukraine and passed a budgetary continuing resolution without any additional appropriations for the war torn country. This was a major blow to Ukraine and a gift to Putin and his regime. The office of Management and Budget has already warned that funding for Ukraine could run out by the end of the year, adding that “if Ukraine’s economy collapses, they will not be able to keep fighting, full stop.”
Instead of providing a clean aid package to Ukraine, Congressional Republicans have demanded major immigration reform in exchange for Ukrainian aid. Their demands include permanent changes to the asylum program, humanitarian parole, and increased deportations through expedited removal. Such changes to immigration have nothing to do with Ukrainian aid and pairing such drastic measures with much needed support to an ally is a disgrace.
Demand your representatives pass a clean aid package to Ukraine and to do so immediately. Time is of the essence, we must stand with Ukraine while they fight for their freedom from Putin and his oppressive regime.
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY, ZIP].
I’m calling to demand [REP/SEN NAME] immediately pass a clean aid package for Ukraine. I oppose changes to our immigration system as part of a deal to provide aid, and continuing to block aid to Ukraine is only helping Putin and his oppressive regime.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
