May Day action on immigration reform

May Day is a day of solidarity and action on behalf of immigrant rights. That makes today a critical day to get in touch with your senators and talk to them about your dreams for fair, comprehensive immigration reform.

tf_immigration marchWe need you to reach out to your senators now and let them know that the country deserves a commonsense, compassionate immigration reform bill that puts our nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants on a pathway to citizenship!

Right now senators are home in their districts. When they come back to D.C. next week, immigration reform will be one of their top priorities.

Now is the time to call 866.563.5608 to get through to your senators’ offices, or send an e-mail. Even better, schedule a visit while your senator’s home from D.C. or make sure to attend one of their town hall meetings nearby.

When they get back to D.C., they’re going to debate legislation that really would create a path to citizenship for many undocumented people in the U.S. and includes provisions for DREAMers. But it’s not enough. Now’s the time to tell your senators that the pathway to citizenship must be an open one without unfair barriers. Tell them the pathway must also be ensure social services for immigrants, and family unity by continuing to allow sibling visas and include recognition for same-sex binational couples.
