With our state still reeling from the Sonoma and Napa Valley fires and six major wildfires currently engulfing homes and forcing residents to evacuate throughout Southern California, Californians are coming together and standing with the victims of these terrible fires.

However, Republicans in Washington, D.C., want to punish Californians impacted by these fires by passing the Trump tax plan, which would repeal the deduction for personal casualty losses due to fire.

Many Californians have lost everything as a result of these devastating fires, and are lucky to have escaped with their lives. Their losses should not be used to line the pockets of the wealthiest Americans.

The Trump tax plan is unconscionable, shameful, and above all, inhumane.

It is clear that Republicans in Washington, D.C., are willing to put the pocketbooks of the wealthiest Americans above the needs of victims. I will continue to stand up and vigorously oppose this inhumane measure and ask that you do the same.

Can I count on you to join me in standing against the Trump tax plan?


Together, we can send a message to the Republicans that their efforts to punish victims of our wildfires will not stand, and that Californians are united against their attempts to line the pockets of the wealthiest Americans at the expense of these victims.

In solidarity,

Fiona Ma
