Make Immigration Reform a Priority

As you may know, this is a great time for us to connect with our members of Congress since they are at home on recess during the month of August.  Our immigration system needs to be overhauled, and the U.S. Senate has taken on immigration reform and passed the Gang of Eight's plan.  We are not endorsing the U.S. Senate's plan, but applaud them for having the political will to take on immigration reform.

The immigration reform battle has shifted to the U.S. House of Representatives, but members have failed to act since the Senate passed their bill in late June.  We are asking all ASBA members to call or email your representative from the U.S. House and urge them to take on and debate immigration reform.  Whether they debate the Senate bill or multiple immigration reform bills of their own, the House needs to take on immigration reform and not let this important issue die in August.

Visit the Prosperity Project's Web site to locate your local member of the U.S. House of Representatives and urge them to take on immigration reform when they return to Washington in December. 

Best regards,
