INVITE: Support the fight against Public Charge! Join Quad Caucus for a Special Order on June 11th & Press Conference on June 12th

We write to invite you to join us to oppose the Department of Homeland Security’s proposed public charge rule, which would make it difficult for many immigrants to come to the U.S. or receive green cards if they are considered likely to use basic benefits
like Medicaid and nutrition assistance.  Last year, the Trump administration published a proposed rule that would administratively alter the definition of the term “public charge” in violation of congressional intent. We ask that you join us for a Special
Order on June 11, 2019 and press conference on June 12, 2019, to shift the narrative surrounding public charge and reaffirm our shared values as a nation.

CO-SPONSOR H. RES. 396: AUTHORIZING AND DIRECTING THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY TO INVESTIGATE ACTS OF MISCONDUCT BY DONALD JOHN TRUMP, POTUS

In 2004, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) made a controversial decision in
San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino that the NLRA applies to tribally owned businesses on tribal lands.  This ruling is of great concern to tribes across the country, as it is a clear threat to tribal sovereignty.  The San Manuel decision was a departure
from prior NLRB rulings in Fort Apache Timber (1976) and Southern Indian (1988), as well as court precedents and the Constitution’s recognition of tribes as sovereign governments.

It is not the place of the federal government to impinge upon the authority of sovereign tribes.  Tribal governments alone, accountable to their tribal members and employees, should decide the labor practices for the entities they own on their lands.  This
bill will reaffirm their sovereign right to do exactly that.

Please join me by being a co-sponsor of H.R. 779 to reaffirm and protect tribal sovereignty.  For more information or to be a co-sponsor, please contact Jayson Schimmenti in my office at jayson@mail.house.gov.

Sincerely,
John Moolenaar,
Member of Congress
