Lobby Day Priority Issues

On March 15, 2007 I will attend the American Immigration Lobby Day in Washington D.C. This will be my six trip in five years to the U.S. Congress to lobby on behalf of immigration reform.

Lobby Day represents a unique opportunity for AILA to deliver a strong, unified message to hundreds of congressional offices. This year, because Congress appears ready to push Comprehensive Immigration Reform over the finish line, our Lobby Day message will focus on four components that are essential to any realistic solution:

* Earned Adjustment for the Current Undocumented Population;
* Enhanced Channels for Legal Workers (including Essential Workers and H-1Bs);
* Reduction of Employment-Based and Family-Based Visa Backlogs; and,
* Preservation of Judicial Review and Restoration of Due Process.

National Day of Action

Lobby Day is just one part of AILA's broader National Day of Action. If you can't make it to Washington, DC, on March 15, you can still join hundreds of AILA members in advocating for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. View our National Day of Action flyer for ideas about creating an in-district Lobby Day and coordinating other pro-immigrant events in your area.
