Partying Across the Nation for Immigration Reform

Today, thousands of people across the nation will be hosting house parties and joining in a national telephonic town hall to ask questions and voice concerns about Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Thus far, nearly 900 parties have been scheduled.

The teleconference, to be hosted by Reform Immigration FOR America, will feature Congressman Luis Gutierrez, Congressman Raul Grijalva, and Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez.

The Campaign titled "Families, Freedom and Faith: A Call to Action for Immigration Reform" is using a new way to connect people directly with each other, with leaders in Washington, and with local Representatives and elected officials. Tonight at 8:00 PM Eastern/5:00 PM Pacific people from coast to coast will be able to listen directly to the Representatives about their outlines for a fair and humane immigration reform.

The fact is, immigration reform can't wait and enforcement-only policies are inhumane, impractical and costly. It doesn't make sense to spend billions of dollars rounding people up, breaking up families, shutting down businesses, and deporting people who are working, learning English, and putting down roots here. We need common sense reform that keeps families together, brings people out of the shadows, protect rights of workers and secures a stable, documented workforce crucial for our country's economic recovery.

The energy, excitement, and commitment of people united to win immigration reform is now stronger than ever and a majority of Americans want their leaders to tackle and solve the tough problems in a humane and practical way. President Obama and Members of Congress in both parties understand that fixing the broken immigration system is a priority that we want Congress to address this year.
