CIR Amendments Pending - Call Your Senators Today!

The Senate CIR battle continues on Monday, June 4, 2007, when debate resumes on the Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Reform Act (S. 1348). Just like last week, amendments will come quickly and urgent action is needed on each of them. Thank you for your enthusiastic response to last week's calls to action! We've heard from Chapter Chairs that AILA members participated by the thousands, often calling multiple times a day! Don't stop now!!

Members of the Senate have introduced over 100 amendments to S. 1348, and a limited number of these will be brought to a vote sometime next week. AILA has compiled a list of "pending" amendments that the Senate is likely to consider and could vote upon as early as Tuesday, June 5. Many of these are critical amendments that could significantly improve, or undermine, the underlying legislation. Please call or write your senators today and urge them to work throughout the amendment process to improve upon the current proposal and protect its positive provisions.
