Default AILA Letter: America needs to reform immigration

I got this email from AILA, I think we can make this a success.... are they trying to do CIR again?? letter is below
===============

We have some big news.

This week, hundreds of allied organizations launched the campaign to Reform Immigration FOR America in cities all across the country -- from Los Angeles to Maine, Miami to Seattle. Today, a broad coalition of allies from labor, business, and community groups officially kicked off the national campaign in Washington, DC. The American Immigration Lawyers Association is a part of this exciting grassroots movement to reform immigration, and we invite you to join us.

On June 4th, over 700 advocates are descending on Capitol Hill to tell Congress:

"We cannot wait any longer. America needs to reform immigration now."
We can't afford to fly you out to DC to join them in person, but we can give you a 1-click way to make sure we have impact. Please take 30 seconds to send a (free) fax to your Senators, Representative, and Congressional leadership right now

http://www.reformimmigrationforamerica.org/?p=AILA


Then please forward this to friends and family. Our goal is to back up those 700 advocates on the Hill with 2,500 phone calls and 20,000 faxes.

Here's our thinking: President Obama has said reforming the immigration system is a priority for him. But it's going to take more than just having the President on our side to win. We need 279 votes to pass comprehensive immigration reform: 218 US Representatives + 60 Senators + the President's signature. So over the coming months, we're going to be asking you to help us flood Congress and the White House with faxes, calls, emails, and visits to say (each in our own way):

Our economy and thousands of families are suffering under the burden of a broken system. The time has come for just and humane immigration reform. We cannot wait any longer.

Together, we can make this happen.


Marshall Fitz
Director of Advocacy
American Immigration Lawyers Association

Default Not faxed yet

I skimmed through their website. More than 90% of it is regarding giving a path to illegal/undocumented workers for establishing permanent residence. There is one point that seems to be somewhat helpful to legal immigrants like us:

"Allocate sufficient visas to close unlawful migration channels. One of the great failures of our current system is that the level of legal immigration is set arbitrarily by Congress—as a product of political compromise. The allocation of employment visas to workers should be depoliticized and placed in the hands of an independent commission that can assess labor shortages and determine the number and characteristics of foreign workers to be admitted, with Congress's approval."

But it seems to be far-fetched and I am not very clear whether it will help us. So, I haven't sent a FAX - Please let me know if you think otherwise... To me, it seems like a path to an excellent business opportunity for AILA lawyers

Default Other idea

Instead of supporting this campaign, we should be mailing to AILA (or whoever is running this campaign) to include our goals such as visa recapture and removing country quota. Then we will support this campaign and send the fax as requested.
