We Need CIR ASAP!
Representative Luis Gutierrez has introduced the Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity Act (CIR ASAP). The bill is the first step in a process that will finally fix our broken immigration system. The legislation will protect workers, keep families together, and promote our national security while ensuring that we stay true to our values as a nation of immigrants. CIR ASAP outlines a progressive vision, a common-sense solution that will restore fairness to our labor markets, acknowledges and values the contributions made by immigrants to our country, and is a step toward economic recovery – because we can’t fix our economy on top of a broken immigration system. It provides a fair pathway to legalization, protects opportunity for education, protects the due process rights of all, and better targets our national security resources. It’s also a step toward making sure our economy has the right foundation to grow and prosper as it recovers from the worst crisis since the Great Depression.
Use our letter to urge your Member of Congress to sign on as a co-sponsor of CIR ASAP. If your Representative has already signed on, you can send in a thank you letter. When you provide your zip code and address, you will see an encouragement letter or a thank you letter, depending on whether your Member is co-sponsoring the legislation.
