      Call to Action


      Immigration reform legislation is taking a turn for the worse. The John Ensign (R-NV) amendment number 3985 is designed to prevent lawfully present immigrant workers from claiming Social Security based on earnings credited before they were authorized to work in the United States. This is fundamentally immoral and un-American.

      While other pending immigration bills will require immigrants on the path to citizenship to pay back taxes, the Ensign bill will prohibit hard working people from receiving Social Security benefits - hundreds of billions of dollars! Surely we can ensure that immigrants who have made enormous financial contributions to the Social Security system receive the credit that they are due.

      It is urgent for lawmakers to unite in opposition to this immoral bill and stop Senator Ensign from stealing the money of hard working immigrants!

      Senators will vote on this amendment TODAY, so please take action immediately. Call 202-224-3121 to reach your Senators via the Capitol switchboard

      Suggested script:

      Hello, my name is (your NAME) and I am calling from (your CITY, STATE). I urge you to oppose and vote down the Ensign amendment number 3985. Stealing money from hard working people is not a solution to our country's broken immigration system - it is theft and it is immoral. We need realistic, workable and humane immigration reform legislation that will provide a path to citizenship for all immigrants, keep families together and protect our civil rights, liberties and due process.

      Llamado a la Accion


      La legislacion de la reforma de la inmigracion empieza a empeorar. La enmienda # 3985 John Ensign (R-NV) esta disenada para prevenir que trabajadores indocumentados puedan reclamar el diero que han contribuyido el Departamento de Seguro Social. Esto es fundamentalmente inmoral.

      !Mientras las propuestas de reforma de inmigracion requeriran a inmigrantes pagar sus impuestos atrasados, la enmienda Ensign prohibira que trabajadores inmigrantes reciban sus beneficios de Seguridad social - millones de dolares! Seguramente debemos asegurar que inmigrantes que han hecho enormes contribuciones financieras al sistema de la Seguridad social reciban el dinero que les pertenece.

      !Es urgente que los legisladores se unan en oposicion a esta enmienda inmoral y parar que el Senador Ensign se robe el dinero que inmigrantes se han ganado con su trabajo duro!

      Llame por favor a su Senador hoy: Llame al 202-224-3121 para hablar con sus Senadores

      El texto sugerido:

      Hola, mi nombre es (su NOMBRE) y estoy llamando de (su CIUDAD, el ESTADO). Yo le insto a oponerse y votar en contra de la enmienda # 3985 del Senador Ensign. Robar dinero de trabajadores inmigrantes no es una solucion a nuestro sistema de inmigracion- es robo y es inmoral.

      Necesitamos una ley de inmigracion justa y humana y que proporcione un camino a la ciudadania para todos inmigrantes, mantenga familias juntas y protega nuestros derechos civiles.
