Action Alert: Educate Your Legislators About the Importance of Comprehensive Immigration Reform!

AILA posted this action alert on Oct. 18, 2005. I sent my letters to Senators Frist and Alexander and Congressman Cooper. Sending the letter by e-mail is fast it took less that 10 seconds. Here is the action alert;

The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on Comprehensive Immigration Reform on October 18. The Committee heard testimony from experts representing a range of opinions about the best way to legislate immigration--the U.S. Department of Labor, the National Immigration Forum, and groups opposed to immigration such as the Center for Immigration Studies. Committee members are evaluating policy alternatives before taking decisive action on immigration reform. Now is the time to educate your legislators about the benefits of comprehensive reform, and the harms of enforcement-only policies!

As an AILA advocate, you know that enforcement is only part of the immigration equation, but many U.S. Senators and Representatives don’t see it that way. You can help educate your Senators and Representative about comprehensive immigration reform and the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act (S. 1033/H.R. 2330). Also, be sure to tell them that recent poll data shows that 78% of registered “likely” Republican voters would support a comprehensive reform bill including increased border security, a temporary worker program, and earned legalization for undocumented immigrants already here!

Remind Congress that only comprehensive immigration reform can provide America with the tools to benefit from immigration! Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121, or click here to send a letter or go to ; http://capwiz.com/aila2/mail/oneclick_compose/?alertid=7614761
