I am extremely excited to announce that we are currently amidst what could potentially be historic Immigration Reform! This is an opportunity to, amongst many other things, keep families united & provide DREAMERS with a chance to fly.
After months of negotiations, a bipartisan bill was created by a group of 8 senators popularly known as the 'Gang of 8'. Their combined efforts resulted in legislation which serves to solve a variety of immigration issues such as securing the border; creating a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants; and would implement new visa programs as well as adding improvements to some old policies.
Fortunately, the U.S. Senate did their part in creating new possibilities for millions of immigrants & their families by passing this landmark bill. Now the future of America's immigration system is in the hands of the House of Representatives. We are depending on them to work together to create monumental change that will improve our current protocols.
The passing of this comprehensive immigration reform bill would be a long awaited victory for immigrant communities. It would reflect the courage, integrity & unity of the people representing this nation.
Now its your turn to do your part. Take a stand for equality! Be a contribution and support immigration reform because everyone matters, even illegal immigrants.
- U.S. House of Representatives
The approved comprehensive immigration reform bill is now on your table, signaling the beginning of weeks of compromises, negotiations & egos. All that I ask of you is simply to bring forth your cooperative spirit & really be there to be a Representative of The United States. The fact is, there are approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants living here today. We make up and are apart of American society. The spotlight is on us now and we won't be ignored any longer.
Be clear & focus on your intentions. You want to find a solution to a problem that has been put on the back burner for years. This is a matter that urgently needs to be checked off your list. The goal is to change the immigration system NOW.
You have the power to create history and transform lives. Use that power for the good of the entire world because your choice will effect everyone inside and outside of the U.S. Be the vehicle for change. Be the 'yes' to the millions of people impacted by this reform bill. Open up new possibilities for the millions of young adults who came here as minors.
One day you may need us to show up and take a stand for you. But today we need you to show up for us. The future is in your hands. How do you chose to write history?
