Recruit 3 People to Help Keep the Pressure on Senators to Continue Immigration Debate on Senate Floor!

More pro-immigration voices need to be heard in Senate offices! Recruit at least 3 of your clients, colleagues, and friends to contact your Senators about the need for fair and workable comprehensive immigration reform! Your US Senators as well as Senate Majority Leader Frist and Minority Leader Reid need to hear from your 3 recruits this week! Tell your recruits to remind these elected officials that immigration reform is a national priority that needs to be dealt with immediately after they deal with the scheduled votes on appropriations bills.

We are deeply disappointed with Senate Leadership for fumbling the Hagel/Martinez compromise when it was so close to reaching the Senate floor for consideration. AILA calls on Senators Frist and Reid to come back to the negotiating table, to work out acceptable procedural assurances that will allow the Hagel/Martinez compromise bill to move forward and be protected through any subsequent conference with the House Sensenbrenner bill. Please encourage your 3 recruits to share this message with Senators Frist and Reid as well as their own Senators. We need to hold all members of the Senate accountable for their failure to reach agreement on immigration reform.

Ask your recruits to spread the message that immigration reform must be comprehensive and that it must: deal adequately with the 11 million or more undocumented people living in the US; maintain the Judiciary Committee-passed amendments that provide for the DREAM Act and AgJobs; and minimize the harsh threats to due process included in Title II. More pro-immigration voices are needed to urge all Senators to support a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform bill.

Senator Majority Leader Bill Frist can be reached in his Washington office at: (202) 224-3344

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid can be reached in his Washington office at: (202) 224-3542
