110th Congress: Getting Immigration on the Agenda

The newly elected leaders of the 110th Congress are in the process of developing their legislative agenda for 2007. House Democratic leaders did not include comprehensive immigration reform in their agenda for the first 100 hours of the 110th Congress, but they will need to take up immigration legislation within the first 100 days if they intend fix our nation's broken immigration system. Advocacy groups like MoveOn.org and the Center for American Progress are already mobilizing to let the new congressional leadership know which policy priorities they expect to see addressed next year. The Center for American Progress's "100 Days Agenda," which highlights Comprehensive Immigration Reform, is available to view on their website; http://www.americanprogressaction.org

You can encourage Congress to make Comprehensive Immigration Reform a legislative priority by filling out a short survey on the MoveOn.org website; http://pol.moveon.org/mandateforchange/survey2/
