|3/15: Immigration Debate Heats Up! ACTION: Call Sen. Specter
Released 15 March 2006  By An Appeal from National Immigrant Solidarity Network
Immigration Debate Heats Up! ACTION: Call Sen. Specter on March 15
All across the country, immigrants and their allies are making their voices heard as the debate on immigration reform heats up! Just last week, 100,000 people marched in Chicago; 40,000 gathered on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol; over 3,000 lobbied in the halls of Congress; and tens of thousands called their Senators during a National Call-In Day.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT SENATE MEMBERS CONTINUE TO HEAR OUR VOICES! The Senate Judiciary Committee will continue to review and revise Senator Specter's (R-PA) draft immigration bill ("Chairman's Mark") this Wednesday and Thursday.
Call Senator Specter, the Judiciary Committee Chair, on Wednesday, March 15 and let him know:
** I support realistic, humane comprehensive immigration reform.
** I oppose legislation that creates a permanent, second-class of workers who will never have a meaningful path to citizenship; the "Gold Card" proposal is unacceptable.
** I believe the Judiciary Committee should not have to work under an arbitrary deadline set by Senator Frist (R-TN) and should have all the time it needs to bring forth a REAL comprehensive immigration reform bill.
You can contact Senator Specter's Judiciary Committee office at: (202) 224-5225
