National Call Congress Days!!
Immigrants and Their Allies Demand Comprehensive Immigration Reform with Calls to Congress
WHAT: Following Congressmen Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Congressman Jeff Flake’s (R-AZ) bipartisan introduction of a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the House, advocates will jam the phone lines in Congress as part of a national call-in day on March 28 and 29. The Fair Immigration Reform Movement along with the Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform are inviting families, workers, students, faith leaders, business leaders, immigrant rights groups and communities across the country to become a part of the movement for immigrant rights. The time is NOW for comprehensive immigration reform in this country. This call-in day is part of a national coordinated campaign of actions to push for fair and humane comprehensive reform.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 28, 2007 and Thursday, March 29, 2007
HOW: Call 1-800-417-7666 and follow instructions to connect to the office of your Congress member. Once connected, tell your Representative that the country needs workable immigration reform now.
National Call for Hearing on the Raids
Over the past year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested and detained thousands of men and women suspected of being undocumented immigrants.
The agency has reportedly left hundreds of children stranded at day care centers, schools and other places. ICE says it didn’t. The families say it did. Congress needs to conduct hearings to set the record straight.
The Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) calls on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to:
- Immediately hold hearings on the Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) raids and their impact on children and families;
- Pass sensible and humane comprehensive immigration reform legislation NOW.
From now until Friday, April 13, let’s make thousands of calls to Pelosi and Reid to say 1) hold hearings on the raids and; 2) Pass CIR.
- House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) – 202-225-0100
- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) – 202-224-3542
