Senate May Vote Thursday on Immigration Reform Bills

The Senate continues to debate immigration reform this week. The base bill for consideration is Senator Frist's enforcement-heavy bill, the Securing America's Borders Act (S. 2454). However, Senator Specter introduced the Judiciary Committee's comprehensive bill as a substitute amendment last Thursday. Cloture votes on both bills could come as early as Thursday. The Judiciary Committee bill will need 60 votes to pass, so we urgently need to reach the Senators who are still on the fence! Your calls this week will be extremely important. If you've been putting off taking action, now is the time to start!
There are 16 Swing Votes on the Judiciary Committee's Comprehensive Bill! Your Help is Urgently Needed!

The Senate Judiciary Committee's Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006 will need 60 Yes Votes in order to pass and these 16 Senators have yet to clearly state whether they will pledge support for the most comprehensive package of all of the Senate proposals. These 16 Senators are still in play and we need your help to bring them on board! Take a few minutes and call 3 offices today. Share this important message;

"I urge you to support the comprehensive bill reported out of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which includes a path to citizenship for the undocumented."

Distribute this action alert widely to your colleagues, clients, friends, and professional networks! These 16 Senators, especially, need to hear pro-immigrant messages. They need to hear from you!
