Immigration Equality is returning to regular “Take Action” updates as immigration reform heats up.
As I have stated before on this blog, and as Senator Leahy has stated so eloquently: Comprehensive Immigration Reform will not be comprehensive unless all families are part of it
What Can You Do?
Ask your members of Congress:
- To cosponsor the Uniting American Families Act, AND
- To ensure Comprehensive Immigration Reform includes all of our families. .
Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) got several boosts last week. Obama mentioned his support for CIR in a town hall meeting in Southern California. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus met with Obama and members came away “hopeful that Obama would address immigration reform this year.”
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, spoke passionately this week about the need for comprehensive reform soon. In her speech, she said a CIR bill “would unite our families, unite our families. Family unification [is an] important principle of our immigration, always has been and would be part of …comprehensive immigration reform.”
Finally, thanks to ALL of you who are commenting on our blog. Your energy is fantastic! Your ideas and analysis are providing everyone (including us!) with a lot of insights which we are incorporating into our work.
