ACTION: National Call-in Day Reminder

THIS IS A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO CALL YOUR SENATORS TODAY!! All Senators, and especially members of the Judiciary Committee, need to hear from their pro-immigrant constituents.

The Senate debate on immigration reform has begun! The Senate Judiciary Committee began consideration of Senator Specter's (R-PA) draft bill ("Chairman's Mark") on Thursday, March 2 and will continue reviewing and revising the bill on March 8, 9 and 16. The Chairman's Mark has some very serious problems, including not providing a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants, creating a permanent caste of second class workers, and limiting due process and judicial review.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOUR SENATORS HEAR FROM YOU! CALL YOUR SENATORS ON THURSDAY, MARCH 9 and urge passage of a realistic, humane comprehensive bill that contains a path to earned citizenship for the undocumented population, extends labor rights and protections to all workers, reunites families, and does not limit judicial review and due process. It is especially important to call if your Senator is on the Judiciary Committee!

You can contact your Senators' offices through the Senate switchboard: (202) 224-3121. Toll Free: (888) 355-3588 (Note: This toll free number may change without notice.)

You can also find contact information for your Senators here:
