Congress man touring cities to document Urgency for Immi reform
Congressman Gutierrez (IL) Announces Five-Week, Fourteen-City Tour to Document Urgency for Immigration Reform in 2009
It is a good start in that after the economic stimulus plan being taken care of, immigration reform should be one of other top priorities and someone should start mobilizing the immigration reform energy somewhere.

February 28, Atlanta, GA
March 1, Albuquerque, NM
March 7, Houston, TX
March 8, Phoenix, AZ
March 13 McAllen, TX

Would it be a good idea for people living in each of these cities to bring the problems of legal immigrants to the congress man.
The Winds are blowing the other way unfortunately.
If you look at the Senate Judiciary committee, you would realise just how arduous a task is ahead.
Sessions,Grassley,Kyl,Durbin etc. No uncle Teddy, and others like Feinstein have their pet legislations like AgJobs and Dream.
Just looking at those first 4 names, sends a chill down my spine that anything helpful to us can get past that committee. I hope I am wrong and if IV leadership sees any positives in it they can correct me. It does look ominous.
Here are the members...
Immigration, Refugees and Border Security
Charles Schumer, New York (Chairman)
Patrick Leahy, Vermont
Dianne Feinstein, California
Richard Durbin, Illinois
Sheldon Whitehouse, Rhode Island
Ron Wyden, Oregon
John Cornyn, Texas (Ranking Member)
Charles Grassley, Iowa
Jon Kyl, Arizona
Jeff Sessions, Alabama
After the stimulus bill, Congress needs to work on something and so I hope Congress decides to pick up Immigration. Favorable or unfavorable to us - i am just tired of waiting.
