Overwhelming Opposition to HR 4437 Thwarts House Majority Plan for Easy Passage; Continued Action Needed!

Unified outrage against HR 4437 continues to echo through the halls of Congress and could be heard in the language of U.S. Representatives as they began to debate the bill on the House floor this morning. Our strident opposition has put a spoke in the wheels of House procedure, making HR 4437's defeat a true possibility. But, THIS FIGHT IS NOT OVER! Congressional debate may continue throughout the coming days and we must continue to express our opposition to this devastating bill that will not provide our country with the Comprehensive Immigration Reform that we desperately need (view AILA's section-by-section analysis of HR 4437 here: http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?docid=18126).

Congress must continue to hear from AILA members, our friends and allies in the immigration advocacy community, the business sector, labor unions, trade associations, guardians of civil and human rights, and the interfaith community. Call your Representative today and forward this message to 5 colleagues!

You can also send a letter to your Senators and Representative urging them to support a realistic, comprehensive approach to immigration reform: http://capwiz.com/aila2/issues/alert/?alertid=7614761&type=CO. We need your help to defeat HR 4437 now!
