Somewhat amazingly to cynics, that activism has shifted what’s happening in Washington. Trump’s team rolled back its detention of green-card holders Sunday. Even a red-state senator is starting to wobble on Trump’s Cabinet picks.
My colleague Aaron Blake has a running tally of where Republican members of Congress stand on the most immediately controversial of those issues: the immigration travel ban. We’re going to take that a step further. Using the Sunlight Foundation’s tool to identify legislators by Zip code, we’re detailing where the people who represent you have stood on the vote to limit Obamacare (part of a budget bill passed in mid-January) and Cabinet picks (if in the Senate). On top of that, we’ve rolled in Blake’s list of who is where on the immigration ban.
Oh, and one other feature: phone numbers. Agree or disagree with your member of Congress? Get in touch. Sometimes, calling your representative actually does something.
Have you identified a position from an elected official that isn’t indicated on our list? Let us know!
