MEDIA ADVISORY

DECEMBER 18, 2017

SAN DIEGO – Outside Rep. Darrell Issa’s office, Indivisible 49 and allies will be joined by a 20’ chicken to protest the House vote on the GOP tax bill and Congress’ delay in passing a clean DREAM Act. This event marks the 49th consecutive anti-Issa rally in 2017 and the one-year anniversary of the first Vista protest in 2016. Indivisible CA50 this week will announce its endorsement of a Democrat to challenge Rep. Duncan Hunter. And organizers prepare for San Diego’s response to the possible firing of Special Counsel Robert Mueller by President Trump.

 

TUESDAY DECEMBER 19

10 – 11 AM

“No to GOP Tax Scam, Yes to Clean DREAM Act” Rally

1800 Thibodo Road Vista 92081

Constituents of Rep. Darrell Issa will protest the GOP tax bill under the gaze of the Trump Chicken, a 20’ inflatable fowl that is the mascot of the #NotOnePenny campaign. San Diego immigrants designed and sewed a Grinch costume for the chicken, to symbolize that Trump’s tax bill is stealing from the American people, not a “Christmas gift”, as he claims. The U.S. House is scheduled to vote on the final bill on Tuesday.

 

Rally goers will also hear from Dreamers who need Issa’s support to get Congress to pass a clean DREAM Act and protects hundreds of thousands from deportation.
