ILIR: Big Push Today

Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform

718 598 7530

Dear Friend of ILIR,


Today, March 27, the Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on immigration reform, including much of the provisions of Kennedy / McCain.

Unfortunately, Senator Bill Frist (R-TN), Senate Majority Leader, has still introduced his own bill - a bill that does not contain a path to legal residence and citizenship for the undocumented. It only deals with border enforcement.


Action Alert: Call Frist's Washington and Tennessee offices (D.C. 202-224-3344 Nashville, TN 615-352-9411) and say:

OPPOSE Senator Frist's decision to bypass the Judiciary Committee and put his own bill on the Senate floor!

SUPPORT a comprehensive and humane solution to our broken immigration system. REAL REFORM includes a path to citizenship for the undocumented population, family reunification, and a new worker program that provides strong worker protections and a safe and secure way for Irish workers to come to the U.S. in the future.

SUPPORT giving the Judiciary Committee as much time as they need to complete their work on this critical issue.

Let him know that Irish America supports comprehensive immigration reform.

Petition: The New American Opportunity Campaign has posted a petition online at ?

Sign on to help spread the word!

Town Hall Meeting with Senator John McCain: Join ILIR and Senator John McCain for another rocking Town Hall meeting in support of comprehensive immigration reform. We are expecting a (over)full house for this, so please make sure you arrive early -
