Senate Expected to Return to Immigration Debate Next Week

Just in from AILA advocacy;

Although we do not have confirmation, we have heard from our contacts on the Hill that the Senate will take up immigration reform again the week of May 15. We do not yet know what kinds of procedural agreements have been reached behind the scenes. Senate Majority Leader Frist has said that he would like to pass a bill before the Memorial Day Recess, which begins on May 29.

It's time to get back on the phones! Even if you have already called your Senators, it is important to begin calling again. Our advocacy efforts between now and Memorial Day must be forceful and sustained. Call your Senators today and urge them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that provides a path to legal status for the current undocumented population. Then, call them again tomorrow! The restrictionists' rhetoric has reached a fever pitch, and we must keep the pro-immigrant messages coming. If you haven't yet, put your Senators' phone numbers on speed dial, and make sure you call every day. We are counting on you!

Senator Majority Leader Bill Frist, Nashville office: 615-352-9411
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Carson City office: 775-882-7343
