There is Still Time to Educate Your Senators During the January Recess!

We asked this a few weeks ago and we're asking once again--do your Senators know how bad HR 4437 really is? Do you? See InfoNet for an updated section-by-section summary of the bill that includes all of the changes made on the House floor:

http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?docid=18258. Too many U.S. Representatives voted for a punitive, unrealistic enforcement bill to satisfy the demands of the loud and misguided restrictionist minority. We must not allow this tyrannical minority to subject our nation to shortsighted, poorly conceived immigration policies. There are still a few days left in the January recess. Now is the time to educate our U.S. Senators about comprehensive reform so that they will not be seduced by the overrepresented voices of anti-immigrant and anti-immigration activists. The Senate reconvenes on January 18, and we expect the debate over immigration reform to begin in the Senate in February, so it is more critical than ever that you meet with your Senators in their home offices--right now--to educate them about how to fix our broken immigration system. We need to make sure our Senators fully grasp just how punitive, extreme, and unworkable HR 4437 is. We need them to understand that the American people want a solution to the immigration problem, and that any proposal that fails to provide a path to legal status for the 11 million undocumented individuals currently here and contributing to our economy will fail. Instead of pouring massive amounts of money into the same failed strategies, we expect the Senate to produce a realistic, comprehensive reform plan.

Call your Senator's office today to set up a meeting! (View tips on meeting with legislators here: http://www.aila.org/content/default.aspx?bc=6755|12131|17669). (View talking points on H.R. 4437 and comprehensive reform here: http://capwiz.com/aila2/issues/alert/?alertid=8339741&type=CU). It's up to you to prevent the Senate from adopting another punitive, unrealistic enforcement-only bill. You are the immigration experts--your Senators must hear from you that comprehensive reform is the only way to truly fix our broken immigration system!
