      Provide relief for families of immigrants

      Subject: Fwd: URGENT: Vote on Immigration Ideas by MIDNIGHT 12/31/08!

      Dear Friends: Earlier today I  forwarded to you an urgent message on this issue.  Here is a much more clear message that I received directly.  I know you're making plans to go out and party tonight, but please take a few minutes to do this.  Thanks! Happy New Year!  Carlos

      From: "NCLR" <policy@...>

      Dear Carlos:

      We need your help urgently!  

      Tonight, December 31, 2008, at midnight, Change.org will be closing first-round voting for their "Top 10 Ideas for America."  Ultimately, they will be presenting the final "Top 10 Ideas" to the Obama Administration on Inauguration Day and building a national campaign to advance these ideas in Congress, leveraging Change.org, MySpace, and other partner organizations.  

      The nativists have, unfortunately, gotten hold of Change.org's campaign.  Below, you will find a message that is being circulated by the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) encouraging their members to vote for their idea:  Enforce Our Immigration Laws.  Thanks to their efforts, ALIPAC's idea has the second highest number of votes in the immigration category at present, meaning that their proposed enforcement will represent the voice of America to the new Administration.  Passing the "Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act" (DREAM Act) is also one of the top three ideas in the immigration category, but we need to ensure that it is accompanied by two other sound ideas; the top three ideas from the first round will be carried over into the second round of voting. 

      We need supporters to vote and comment before midnight tonight.

      We encourage you to vote in support of the following:
      Pass the DREAM Act
      Comprehensive Immigration Reform  
      Provide relief for families of immigrants
      Bring the Family Immigration System into the 21st Century   
      Equal Immigration Rights for Same Sex Binational Couples

      Once you are signed into your account, click on the "vote" box next to the idea you would like to vote for.  If you do not have an account with Change.org, you can sign up here: http://www.change.org and then access the voting pages.
      Remember that first-round voting closes at midnight tonight.  Please vote.  Then tweak this email as you see fit, and forward it to your networks, family, and friends, or invite them to vote by way of the "email friends" feature on Change.org.
      Thank you for your help, and we wish you a happy New Year!
