More victims of Tom McClintock’s neglect

 

 

Dear Friend,

Another year gone. Hundreds of lives lost or irrevocably damaged. Thousands of homes and businesses destroyed. This is Tom McClintock’s legacy.

For more than a year, Tom McClintock’s constituents have been asking — begging — for help. More than a year ago, we wrote about the lives lost due to his neglect. We joined the chorus of voices demanding action at the federal level to address the rising threat of wildfires. At the time, Republicans had complete control of the federal government. And still, nothing was done. Tom McClintock’s policies are too extreme even for his own party. In the last year, Californians have suffered from one fire after another. The Camp Fire erupted in November of last year, taking 85 lives — most of them retired in the idyllic community of Paradise — and destroying 18,804 structures. And still, nothing has been done. More than 6,400 fires have burned in California in 2019, destroying more than 250,000 acres of land. And still, nothing has been done.

Tom McClintock has shown, time and again, that he does not have what it takes to fix the enormous problems facing California’s 4th District. For more than ten years, he’s stubbornly refused to consider any solution to California’s wildfire problem except an extreme approach that can never pass. And for his ten years representing California’s 4th District, nothing has been done.

Earlier this week, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case that could allow the Trump Administration to end the DACA program which protects young immigrants brought to the United States as children from deportation.

I don’t say this lightly. One of the proudest moments of my first year in Congress was voting in support of H.R. 6 the American Dream and Promise Act. This bill provides a pathway to permanent legal status for the 800,000 Dreamers who came to the United States as children and consider this their home.

I remember when Dreamers from my district came out to Washington to advocate for this bill. I also remember being on the House floor and looking up to the gallery where I saw them — tears in their eyes — when this bill finally passed.

Dreamers should not have to live in fear of deportation. They have grown up here, gone to school here, and they contribute to this country. They’re just as American as my own children. And the idea that the Supreme Court may nullify DACA should concern anyone who believes in the American Dream.

With DACA at stake, will you sign our petition reaffirming your commitment to protecting our Dreamers by creating a pathway to permanent legal status?

We reached out last week because Devin Nunes’ lawyer sent us a threatening letter aimed at silencing us and derailing our campaign. We set an aggressive rapid response goal so we’d have the resources to fight back — but we fell short by $5,000. But a group of generous donors — after learning that we didn’t meet our goal — agreed to match all donations that come in before midnight on Friday. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Excerpt from Nunes' lawyer's threatening letter

We set an aggressive rapid response goal so we’d have the resources to fight back — but we fell short by $5,000.

But a group of generous donors — after learning that we didn’t meet our goal — agreed to match all donations that come in before midnight on Friday.

I need your help — will you chip in a MATCHED donation so we have the resources to withstand and respond to these attacks?
