Call Congress to Stop War with Iran

Reps. Ro Khanna (D-CA) and Seth Moulton (D-MA) are planning to offer an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would block funds for a war and clarify that no Congressional authorization exists. This is a good amendment, and there is a narrow path to get it signed into law. Unfortunately, there are many pro-war voices in Washington DC who are going to try to stop it. We need to be louder than them.

That’s why we need you to tell your Member of Congress to support the Khanna-Moulton amendment.

First step: Call 1-844-ACT-NIAC to reach the Congressional Hotline and ask to be connected to your Representative. (You can find out who your Representative is here)

Follow This Script:

“I am deeply concerned by John Bolton’s threat of ‘unrelenting force’ against Iran as well as President Trump’s ominous warning that he would ‘end Iran’ in a war. The American people do not want another disastrous war of choice in the Middle East. Will Rep. XXXX vote for the Khanna-Moulton amendment tomorrow to block an unauthorized war with Iran?”

If yes: “That is so great to hear. I am proud to hear that my legislator is standing up against an illegal and disastrous war against Iran.”

If no/noncommittal: “That is very concerning to hear. The amendment merely protects Congress’ power to declare war, while preventing the Trump administration from following through on its threats to start a disastrous war. Will you urge Rep. XXXX to vote yes on the Khanna-Moulton amendment?”

Tell Congress: No War With Iran!

Call Your Member of Congress: Stop War with Iran!

Thanks for writing to your representative. Now take the next step by calling their office and telling them: No War With Iran. Together, our voices can prevent a reckless and unnecessary war with Iran.

Call Your Congressperson to Demand an end to H.R.1044/S.386

Contact your Senators and Representatives by calling 1-844-ACT-NIAC:

Here’s a sample script of what to say:

Hello, my name is (your first name). I live in (your city) [and am a member of NIAC Action]. I’m calling to ask Rep./Sen XX to oppose HR1044/S386. While HR1044/S386 may serve as a short term solution to the green card backlog for immigrants from large countries, like India and China, it will extend the wait time for those from smaller countries. Iranians, who are by in large in this country on single entry visas, will be especially impacted because we cannot see our families due to the Muslim ban. For those that wish to stay in the United States, a green card is the only opportunity we have to see our families. In addition, removing per-country caps lowers the diversity of the high skilled immigrant workforce, something that many of us here in the US take pride in. So I strongly urge the Congressman/Senator to oppose HR1044/S386.”
