Default response from a member of SJC

i contacted Senator dewine, urging him to back the PACE act
here is the reply i got

keep ur fingers crossed


Dear xxxxxx

Thank you for contacting me regarding illegal immigration. I agree
that
illegal immigration is a very serious problem and appreciate knowing
your
views.

Currently, there are approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants
in
the United States, with close to 1 million more arriving every year.
Yet,
our current immigration system is broken. It is a system that is not
good
for American security, particularly during our fight to combat
international terrorism. It is not good for American workers and
businesses. And, it is not good for the immigrants, themselves.

To tackle this problem, we must have a comprehensive immigration plan
that
toughens our borders, documents illegal immigrants, and provides for
American labor needs. The Senate Judiciary Committee, of which I am a
member, is set to take up immigration reform soon. In fact, several
immigration bills are currently pending before the Committee, including
a
border protection bill passed by the House of Representatives in
December
2005. As the Judiciary and the full Senate debate immigration reform,
I
will be certain to keep your views in mind.

Again, thank you for contacting me. If you have any additional
concerns,
please feel free to contact me anytime.

Very respectfully yours,
MIKE DeWINE
United States Senator

This proves that the faxes sent via the webfax features are actually reaching the senators. I received a reply from Senator Specter's office too.


As far as the content of the replies goes, this proves again that to a lot of lawmakers, immigration = ILLEGAL immigration. It is upto us to educate them of our plight too.

Wam4Wam, can you call up your senator's office and speak to the immigration liaision? Explain to him that when you sent the fax to them, you had asked for considering pro immigrant legislation for legal immigrants.

You can ask the liaision for a meeting too. We have all the necessary resources you need for such a meeting on our resources website. The CA team has been successfully using these resources. And please update this thread too so that others may learn from you

Sometimes the senators, reps, have a prewritten document that they send out to anyone asking them about immigration reforms, that addresses the immigration issues. Notice how the reply faxes do not specifically address the issues we have raised, this is why.
But replies from some senators and reps are genuine and they do talk about the issues we raise.
