KEY VOTES ALL THIS WEEK - ACTION NEEDED!

KEY VOTES ALL THIS WEEK - ACTION NEEDED!

Your senators are back in DC and prepared to spend the week voting on a string of immigration amendments. Senate leaders will likely hold a cloture vote to end debate and proceed with a vote on FINAL PASSAGE by the end of this week.

The Yeas and Nays will begin tomorrow morning with votes on the Allard amendment to strike the supplement schedule for green cards for Z visa holders and the Durbin/Grassley amendment to remove DOL-determined labor shortages as an exception to employer recruitment requirements for Y visas. Please urge your senators to OPPOSE both amendments. Visit InfoNet for talking points on both amendments!

In addition to the bad Allard and Durbin/Grassley amendments, we expect the Senate to vote on an unpredictable mix of amendments tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday--some GOOD, some BAD, and others UGLY! Immigration advocates MUST CALL ABOUT THESE AMENDMENTS when they come up for consideration! AILA staff will prepare you to call your Senators by posting up-to-the-minute amendment information and talking points at www.aila.org. We may need you to call MULTIPLE TIMES A DAY!


STAY INFORMED! CHECK INFONET FREQUENTLY!
CALL YOUR SENATORS ABOUT EACH AMENDMENT!
