When Calling a Senator:
Hi, my name is ____________ and I’m a constituent from _______________. I’m calling today to ask Senator ____________ to cosponsor Senator Feinstein’s legislation, the Keeping Families Together Act, which would stop border agents from taking kids away from their parents at the border.

I expect Senator _____________ to sign on to this bill. I’d like to hear back from Senator ___________ on how he/she plans to take action on this crisis. My name is _____________ and my address is ______________. Thank you.
When Calling a Representative:
Hi, my name is __________ and I’m a constituent from _______________.
