Action Alert: Call the House Today for Immigration Reform

On Wednesday, July 10th, House Republicans will convene a special meeting to determine their position and strategy on immigration reform. Since Republicans make up a majority of the House of Representatives, this meeting will have a profound influence on the future of immigration reform.

Just last week, the Senate passed immigration reform and now the big question is what the House will do. So far, House Committees have approved five bills, none of which create a path to citizenship, and all of which contain provisions that would negatively impact immigrant communities.

ACTION: Urge your Representative to focus on legislation that creates a pathway to citizenship and reunites families.

Call the Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 or find your Representative’s direct line.

Sample script:

“I am from [City, State, Congregation], and I urge the Representative to support immigration reform that creates a path to citizenship, reunites families, and does not further militarize the border.

As a person of faith, I urge the Representative to OPPOSE bills like the SAFE Act, Border Security Results Act, Agricultural Guestworker Act, and SKILLS Visas Act. These are not real reforms to our immigration system. We need immigration reform that creates a path to citizenship and reunites separated families.”
