2018 Congressional Candidate Questionnaires

Primary day is fast approaching!

That’s right – the June 5th primary election is a few weeks away. There are competitive races up and down the ballot, including for your seat in Congress.

This Congressional race is crucially important. We want to make sure the Democratic nominee is a champion on our issues: clean water, living wages, climate justice, and protecting the immigrant community.

That’s why the CCI Action board developed a questionnaire that we circulated to all the Democratic candidates.

We gave the various campaigns a fair amount of time to respond, and now we have compiled the responses from your district into one handy chart.

Stop the hate on the hill – Reject SF 481!

Stop the hate on the hill – Reject SF 481!

Last year our immigrant communities were attacked at the State House in conjunction with a larger national effort to purge our country of the feared "other". This year, we expect to see more hate on the hill. 

SF 481 seeks localize federal immigration authority by forcing local law enforcement to do the job of Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE); it also targets public entities such as municipalities or counties who have taken a hard stance on immigration by speaking out in favor of protecting those communities; finally it threatens to cut funding from public entities that express support for immigrant communities.

The bill passed the Senate on a party-line vote and now sits in the House Public Safety Committee.

We're tired of these low-blow attacks on immigrants. We're fighting back! We have the power to stop SF 481.
