Last night President Obama included as part of his State of the Union address:
“And we should continue the work of fixing our broken immigration system – to secure our borders , enforce our laws so that everyone who plays by the rules can contribute to our economy and enrich our nation.”
As reported in the Washington Post in August of 2009 President Obama expected draft legislation for immigration reform in 2009, but that immigration reform would fall behind more pressing issues, including health-care reform, energy legislation and financial regulatory changes.
I was in a conference call regarding immigration reform yesterday for about an hour. The reoccurring message was that our representatives needed to know that they had our support for immigration reform. The received a large amount of phone calls and emails from those who oppose immigration reform. They need to receive an amount of emails or calls as large or larger to vote in favor of immigration reform.
To make the process of contacting your representatives as easy as possible I have included a link below. This link will help you find your representative, has a editable email message, you would need to fill in your name. There is no cost to use this. The cost to not contact your representatives is to not have a working immigration system for another year. email your congressman
