Urge Your Representatives to Sign Two Important Letters Supporting TRUE Immigration Reform!

Right now, Congressman Brian Bilbray (R-CA) and the House Immigration Reform Caucus are circulating two important letters on immigration reform they plan to send to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and President Bush. We need your help to get as many Representatives to sign these letters as possible!
Please act now!
The first letter, addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, urges the Speaker not to bring amnesty legislation to the floor of the House. It states, "Amnesty hurts vulnerable American workers, burdens American taxpayers, and rewards lawbreakers," while only encouraging more illegal immigration.
The second letter urges President Bush to continue Homeland Security's efforts to vigorously enforce the laws that ensure that employers do not hire illegal immigrants. Citing a Center for Immigration Studies report which found that current immigration has substantially reduced wages of low-skilled workers, the letter states, "Employers who hire illegal immigrants create unfair competition in the labor market and depress wages for all workers."
Now is the time to voice your opinion!
The debate on immigration reform is accelerating every day. President Bush and White House officials are putting more and more pressure on Members of Congress to support guest worker amnesty legislation. Our Nation's leaders need to know that they cannot pursue immigration policies that serve special interests and ignore the will of the American people. Call your Representatives in Washington and ask them to sign onto these important letters and join the bipartisan coalition of Members committed to true immigration reform!!!!
