Call These Congressional Conferees Today!

Alert Update
Your calls today are paying off! The House continues to hold its position in support of the immigration provisions - despite major opposition by Senate conferees.

Many of you have received instructions from the offices of Speaker Hastert and Majority Leader DeLay to call Senators Joe Lieberman (D-CT) and Susan Collins (R-ME) and Representative Jane Harman (D-CA). These conferees are threatening to kill the bill entirely if the House immigration security provisions are not removed from the final bill.

We are issuing this alert update to urge those of you who have not yet called these legislators to please call their offices right away.

Please make an additional round of calls to these conferees:
Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) 202-224-4041
Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) 202-224-2523
Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA) 202-225-8220

Ask these conferees to put the security of our nation ahead of special interest politics. Press them to accept the House immigration security provisions. Read our press release for further details.

*Note - If they refuse your comment because you are calling from outside of the state or congressional district, politely remind them that the decision they are making will have national consequences; therefore, they should consider your concerns, as well as those who voted them into office.
