Why Now?

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee will likely decide on immigration reform measures on March 27th, 2006. If you care about immigration issues, NOW is the time to act.
What To Do:

CALL OR FAX the following four U.S. Senators with this message:

I support balanced, comprehensive immigration reform that:
* provides protection to refugees and asylum seekers fleeing persecution;
* supports family reunification; and
* provides a path to citizenship with reasonable requirements.

1) Sen. Mark Dayton, Minnesota Senator (or your Senior State Senator)
PHONE: 612-727-5220 or 888-224-9043
FAX: 612-727-5223

2) Sen. Norm Coleman, Minnesota Senator (or your Junior State Senator)
PHONE: 651-645-0323 or 800-642-6041
