Next weekend marks 100 days out from the 2018 midterm elections.
It also marks the one year anniversary of stopping Republicans from passing TrumpCare, which would have stripped 16 million people of health care. Now, we have the chance to use that same power to flip the House (and maybe the Senate!) by electing progressive leaders who represent our movement’s values.
For the next 100 days, Indivisible groups (including Lower Cape Indivisible) will #DoTheWork necessary build the big blue wave across the country. And we’re kicking off that work, coast to coast, in a weekend of action from July 27 to July 29.

This week’s policy rundown
A generation of progress could be undone with Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Immigrant families are still waiting to be reunited. Trump continues to put us all at risk by attacking our allies on the world stage, and siding with authoritarians. Now, more than ever, we need to come together and let the country know that we’re ready to #DoTheWork to elect leaders that stop the Trump administration’s agenda once and for all.
Republicans are trying to fit in as much funding for terrorizing immigrant communities as they can before the blue wave sweeps them out of office.
- House Republicans want to increase funding for Trump’s cruel immigration policies. The House Appropriations Committee plans to mark up a package to fund the Department of Homeland Security next week. The bill could be amended before the committee votes on it, but we already know it includes nearly $4 billion in additional funding for CBP, over $300 million in additional funding for ICE, and $5 billion for Trump’s wall.
- The deadline for the Trump administration to reunify children separated from their parents at the border through its zero tolerance policy is July 26. Check out our resource on the current status of family separation.
And this week’s #TrumpThreatLevel:
- Trump kowtowed to Putin in Helsinki. Trump refused to confront the Russian president over Russia’s interference in our elections, seizure of Crimea, or human rights abuses — days after he blasted our closest allies. As our Associate Policy Director Elizabeth Beavers said in an op-ed for CNN, “Trump’s choice to spend his time overseas harassing and insulting our closest friends while cozying up to our adversaries Putin and Russia is just the latest in his year-and-a-half-long campaign to actively harm US interests by exporting Trumpism abroad.”
