Ultimately, their direct contact to lawmakers decided the fate of comprehensive immigration reform–and it didn’t go in our favor.
Six years later, Congress is considering a new bill that will provide a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America. This time around, we know what we all have to do to win. That’s why we’re asking you to make one call per day, for the next week, until the Senate votes to support commonsense immigration reform with a roadmap to citizenship.
Just today, President Obama publicly challenged us to be more active on immigration reform than ever before. Our President’s ask is a timely one – the Senate is likely to vote on immigration bill S. 744 in mid-June. And in order for this legislation to have a real chance at passing. we don’t just need every Democrat on our side–we need Republicans too.
We’re going to need to pass this bill with strong bi-partisan support in order for the legislation to survive, which is why it’s imperative your Senator hear from you now. Legislative strategists have determined that it takes at least 100 calls per day to sway how a Senator votes. Just 100 calls a day can make or break a piece of legislation.
When it’s all said and done, don’t you want to know that you did absolutely everything you could do to pass this legislation?
The most effective thing you can do is just pick up the phone and call.
