ILIR: April 7th Is New Deadline!

Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform

Dear Friend of ILIR,

So, you got the bill out of the Judiciary Committee – now

Friday April 7 is the new deadline!!!

As the debate heats up we need you to call both your State
Senators PLUS Texas Senator (R) John Cornyn.

Cornyn (202-224-2934) could hold the key to turning the
Senate in favor of McCain/Kennedy.

If you've never made a phone call to your Senator in your
life, we're urging you to do so today, Thursday and Friday.
If you've already made several calls, please make several

Here's all you need to say:

The Senate is now considering immigration reform, and is
expected to vote on an immigration bill this week. I urge
you to support the comprehensive bill reported out of the
Senate Judiciary Committee, which includes a path to
citizenship for the undocumented.

The next three days are vital in the immigration debate as
the Senate is expected to have the next version of the bill
ready by Friday.

The hopes of the Irish undocumented - and every other
undocumented immigrant - depend on the Senate adopting the
same elements of McCain Kennedy as the Senate Judiciary
Committee did.

But the Senate offices are being flooded with calls from
the anti-immigrant faction.

You can find the telephone and e-mail information for your
Senators here:

However, at this point, calls are better.

Please check our website at for more

Also, please make sure you attend your local rally on April
10. See or for
