This pledge closed about 1 year ago
The time to take the pledge is now! Why? Because this is just the beginning of the debate over immigration reform in Capitol Hill and now is the right time to start applying pressure on Congress to pass immigration reform by this summer.
The Senate's so-called "Gang of Eight," the eight Senators who have been deliberating immigration reform for the past six months, have finally revealed the 844-page bill known as the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, and have started holding hearings on the bill.
But as the graphic clearly shows, the road to passage of the bill (or bills) is just now getting started. The fact that the Senate has revealed their immigration bill and is holding hearings is great. It is expected that the House will soon reveal their bill and plans for reform and will also follow suit with hearings of their own.
So this is the right time to get energized and let others know what's going on in Congress. Take the pledge to get five of your family members or friends to sign the petition we intend to take to Congress by the end of summer, and help us to pass much needed immigration reform...together we can do it!
