Rod Blum abandons our family values

In the United States in 2018, young children are being taken away from their parents and placed alone in cages at detention centers along the border.

One of the few people with the power to help stop this, Rep. Rod Blum, is silent in the face of family destruction.

My emails are not returned, his office is locked, my letters ignored and calls go to voicemail. He has not held an event where I can access him, my representative that my tax dollars pay, in more than a year.

Silence and inaction when you hold power are complicity.
