"Indivisible Is Fired Up" - San Diego City Beat writes about the Indivisible movement and about our rallies at Issa's office. Our work is making a difference!
Keep up the pressure on Issa to:
Oppose the latest, disastrous GOP AHCA proposal - worse than the first!
Oppose the tax reform outlined this week. Demand Trump's tax returns before any tax reform legislation is considered.
Call for a full and independent investigation into Trump's ties to Russia.
Condemn the aggressive and illegal actions of ICE agents.
This Week’s Successes
