Help us to tell the House of Republicans that the time for immigration reform is NOW!
Polling shows that a majority of Americans support passage of a comprehensive immigration reform bill. The Senate has clearly reacted to the will of the people, and have negotiated with conservatives and progressives alike to fashion a bill that offers strong border security measures, a path to citizenship for eligible undocumented immigrants, and an expedited path to citizenship for DREAM Act eligible students.
So where is the House?
They continue to insist on extended debate and on introducing piecemeal legislation that addresses only the concerns of Republican representatives, such as stricter border security measures (the Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement Act) and even tougher employer verification laws (the Legal Workforce Act) while doing NOTHING to address the status of the undocumented in this country and the increased deportations that continue to tear families apart.
Sign your name below, and we'll deliver the list of signatures to the office of House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), who will decide whether or not to bring the bill up for a vote.
We need to show the House that there are thousands of people behind immigration reform, and your name is vital to getting a comprehensive bill passed!!
