Thank the President for Stimulating Healthy Debate on Immigration

"By passing comprehensive immigration reform, we will add to this country's security, to our prosperity, and to justice." President George W. Bush, Nov. 28, 2005

Dear Mario,

President Bush is touring U.S. Border States to address our country's urgent need for comprehensive immigration reform. The President is encouraging Congress to consider bipartisan immigration reform that seeks to fix our broken immigration system, not just mend the borders. We thank the President for emphasizing the futility of border enforcement independent of deep and far reaching reforms to our nation's immigration laws.

While appreciative of the President's leadership on this issue, we are seriously concerned that his solution does not go far enough to protect the dignity and human rights of refugees seeking safety from persecution restore and strengthen due process reunite families separated by backlogs, artificially low caps, and lengthy processing delays provide an earned path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who work hard and contribute to our economy and society. We applaud President Bush for his commitment to facilitating a bipartisan dialogue about this highly contentious political issue. We believe that the bi-partisan McCain/Kennedy/Kolbe/Flake/Gutierrez bill (The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act of 2005 (S. 1033 / H.R. 2330) establishes the necessary elements for realistic reform and provides an essential framework for this debate.

Please, join us to promote bi-partisan Comprehensive Immigration Reform by encouraging your Senators and Representatives to support for The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act of 2005.
