Default CALL CAMPAIGN Part 2: New List of Reps to Call

Thanks to all the members who have made calls to the CHC members (Campaign to call specific Congressional Hispanic Caucus Members).

We are calling upon all IV members to participate in Step 2 of the campaign for more co-sponsors for our bills HR 6039, HR 5882 & HR 5921.

Please see the instructions below:

(1) Call the congressman/woman office and request to speak with the aide who handles Legislative and Immigration matters

2) If they are not available leave a VM for them

I would like Representative "Representative Name" to co sponsor bills HR 6039 & HR 5882, HR 5921. All the three bills have wide bipartisan support in the house and will help improve American competitiveness & reduce the back logs associated with USCIS. All these bills are non controversial measures that will help US to stay competitive with a highly educated and skilled work force

(3) As usual Do NOT get into the CIR issue or illegal Immigration. If the aide is confusing with CIR or illegal immigration, just tell them that these are legal immigration bills.

(4) If the aide asks whether you belong tot he district or not, tell them NO if you don't. Mention to them that you already spoke with your representative and would like the congressman/congresswoman support.

(5) Send a PM to nixstor or me if you need to pass on any feedback from the offices.

Here is the list of representatives to contact:

Rep. Jo Ann Emerson - Missouri
(202) 225-4404

Rep. Jon Porter - Nevada
202-225-3252

Rep. Heather Wilson - New Mexicoo
202-225-6316

Rep. Greg Walden - Oregon
202-225-6730

Rep. Shelley Moore Capito - West Virginia
(202) 225-2711

Rep. Thomas Petri - Wisconsin
202-225-2476

Rep. Christopher Shays - Connecticut
(202) 225-5541


Rep. Michael Castle - Delaware
(202) 225-4165

Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite - Florida
(202) 225-1002

Rep. Jim McCrery - Louisiana
(202) 225-2777

Rep. Dave Camp - Michigan

Rep. Fred Upton - Michigan
(202) 225-3761

Rep. Jim Ramstad - Minnesota
(202) 225-2871

Default Response from Senator Tom Carper

Dear Ms. XXXX



Let me begin by apologizing for the earlier email I sent you erroneously. It was intended for another constituent and I mistakenly directed it to you. Thank you for contacting me regarding employment based visas. I appreciate your kind words and I value your input on this important matter.



In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, considerable concern was raised about the effectiveness of the U.S. visa application and screening process in preventing terrorists from entering our country. As you know, each of the 19 participants in these attacks entered the U.S. legally despite provisions in federal immigration law that sought to bar the admission of any individual with terrorist affiliations. In an effort to prevent such tragic mistakes in the future, Congress authorized a sweeping overhaul of U.S. visa policy under the Homeland Security Act.



While I believe that these changes represent a fair, measured response to the realities law enforcement and immigration officials face in the post-September 11th world, I do share your concerns with the impact that the new visa application and screening procedures have on those pursuing a better life in the United States. As you may know, considerable visa delays have already prevented a number of legitimate applicants from entering the U.S. legally. If such delays become commonplace, I believe the U.S. would lose the significant cultural, educational, and economic benefits offered by those individuals.



As you know, Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) introduced H.R. 5882, a bill to recapture employment-based immigrant visas lost to bureaucratic delays and to prevent losses of family- and employment-based immigrant visas in the future, on April 23, 2008.



H.R. 5882, which has 10 bipartisan cosponsors, was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary for consideration. Similar legislation has not yet been introduced in the Senate at this time.



I agree with you about the value of this legislation. As Chairman of the Federal Financial Management, Government Information and International Security Subcommittee, I devote a great deal of time and effort to investigating and eliminating government waste and mismanagement. If unnecessary bureaucratic delays are impeding the opportunities of hard-working, legal immigrants, I believe Congress should act to improve the visa and green card processes, provided our national security and border control is maintained.



Thank you again for contacting my office. Should I get the chance to consider H.R. 5882 or a related measure with my colleagues in the full Senate this year, I will surely keep your views in mind. In the meantime, I will continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to craft meaningful, comprehensive immigration reform that is both practical to enforce and upholds our cherished national tradition of offering opportunities to people from all walks of life. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future about matters of importance to you.



With best personal regards, I am



Sincerely,

Tom Carper
United States Senator
