Take Action for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Immigration Reform may come to a vote on the Senate floor as early as this Thursday. Anti-immigrant groups have been very vocal and those who support a progressive immigration policy need to make phone calls every day in order to help balance this small but very loud voice. Because Senator Frist’s bill is under consideration, there is a very real threat that the Senate could pass an enforcement bill similar to the restrictive and punitive Sensenbrenner bill that cleared the House last year. If this happens, it could easily move through conference committee and become law. We urge our Pennsylvania members to call their senators. Senator Santorum opposes a path to citizenship, which he calls “amnesty.” He needs to hear that his constituents support comprehensive immigration reform that includes an earned path to citizenship. Call Senator Santorum at (202) 224-6324 or (215) 864-6900. Senator Specter supports a path to citizenship, so call to thank him for his leadership on this issue at (202) 224-4254.
