Act now for immigration reform

The Catholic Campaign for Immigration Reform reports:
The legislative action on immigration reform has now turned to the U.S. Senate. Over the next few days, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be “marking up” legislative proposals. The Judiciary Committee Chairman, Arlen Specter (R-PA), introduced his “Chairman’s Mark” (The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006) on February 24. It is critically important to actively engage the Senate at this time.

Your Senators need to hear from you now. Your Senators need to understand that only comprehensive legislation will fix the ills of the current system and that an enforcement-only approach is ineffective and unacceptable.
