Call Hogan and Ask Him to Pass the DREAMer Scholarship Bill

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has the opportunity to reverse his abysmal track record on immigration. A bill to protect DREAMers is sitting on his desk. The DREAMer scholarship bill breezed through the Maryland General Assembly more than three weeks ago. But Hogan hasn’t moved to sign the bill.

 

Call Hogan’s legislative office at 410-974-3336 to say you support the DREAMer scholarship bill. Use our script to guide your conversation, and then let us know how the call went. This last step is important because it helps shape how we pressure Hogan’s office.

 

Remember that telephone calls are usually taken by a staff member, not Hogan himself. Ask to speak with the aide who handles education.  

Sample Script

Hello, Governor Hogan’s office.

Hi, this is (Your Name) and I live in (City). I’d like to speak to the staffer who handles immigration or education issues.

Hold on please while I check if that person is available. (pause) I’m sorry, our education LA isn’t available right now. Can I take a message?

Yes, I’m calling about HB 420, the DREAMer scholarship bill. I know Governor Hogan has that bill on his desk, waiting for his signature. I urge him to sign HB 420 into law.

As governor, it is his responsibility to be on the frontlines, protecting everyone that lives in Maryland. That means he is charged with supporting the 34,000 DREAMers live in Maryland. HB 420 lets DREAMers apply for scholarships they need to graduate.

The bill is sitting on his desk! When will he sign it?

[Answer.] Thanks for your message. Can I get your full name, address, and telephone number?

(Full Name), 1234 First Street, City, Maryland, 12345. (555) 555-5555.

 

Thank you. I will pass along your message to Governor Hogan.

 

Thank you.
