On Thursday, March 21st, a comprehensive immigration reform bill was to be presented in the Senate. However, the Senate has delayed introduction of the bill, and plans to instead present the bill after their spring recess.
For the 1,100 undocumented immigrants deported each day and the thousands of families torn apart by the Senate’s failure to act, this is unacceptable.
Please join with Causa as we hold our Senators in Washington D.C. accountable for the promises they have made.
On Thursday, March 21, 2013, please call and send an email to Oregon U.S. Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden asking them to urge Senator Harry Reid, Senator Patrick Leahy and the Gang of 8 to introduce an immigration reform bill now without delay.
Also, remind them:
- – Every day Congress fails to move forward on an immigration reform bill, 1,100 families are torn apart through deportations
- – There is a moral urgency for action
- – Our Nation’s broken immigration system and the families being torn apart by it doesn’t go on recess.
- – Any bill introduced must include legalization for all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. with a path to citizenship and no obstacles.
