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
Thank you for contacting me regarding illegal immigration. I agree
illegal immigration is a very serious problem and appreciate knowing
Currently, there are approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants
the United States, with close to 1 million more arriving every year.
our current immigration system is broken. It is a system that is not
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
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
border protection bill passed by the House of Representatives in
2005. As the Judiciary and the full Senate debate immigration reform,
will be certain to keep your views in mind.
Again, thank you for contacting me. If you have any additional
please feel free to contact me anytime.
Very respectfully yours,
United States Senator

Atleast the fax is reaching the senators
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
use link from senate.gov
i did not use the fax service
i used the link from www.senate.gov
i have always gotten response when i used that link
Sen. Dewine is aware about the issue
But replies from some senators and reps are genuine and they do talk about the issues we raise.
