In a highly manipulative measure the GOP is trying to go against what all recent votes have stated – the U.S. public does not want harsh treatment of migrants. We’ve seen all the anti-migrant GOP candidates knocked out and we’ve seen politicians that pushed for harsh immigration laws kicked out of office. Please do not let this happen.
Call write, fax, email and send pigeons. Do whatever you have to do to make sure we don’t see harsh immigration reform passed.
GOP Moves to Force Immigration Vote – AP
By JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS – 1 hour ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans are trying to force action on a Democratic-written immigration enforcement measure, the latest GOP attempt to elevate the volatile issue into an election-year wedge.
Republican leaders hope that by pushing the bill — endorsed by 48 centrist Democrats and 94 Republicans — they can drive Democrats into a politically painful choice: Backing a tough immigration measure that could alienate their base, including Hispanic voters, or being painted as soft on border security in conservative-leaning districts.
