Doing nothing is not a solution. Immigrants' List is a political action committee (PAC) dedicated to electing members of Congress who support common-sense immigration reform.
Lately, the political news seems to be filled with the retirement announcements of members of Congress -- five in the last two weeks -- in part because this is going to be a volatile election year.
At Immigrants' List, we see Election Day 2010 as an opportunity -- a chance to gain more votes for immigration reform. Last week, we introduced you to our 2010 endorsed candidates -- 12 House incumbents and challengers. If you haven't already, visit our website to learn more about the 12 candidates who we believe will be the difference when Congress votes on immigration reform. (Learn more here about our 12 candidates.)
This week, we want you to know where YOUR member of Congress stands on immigration reform. Our 2010 scorecard rates House members on whether they're with us in supporting fair and meaningful reform or against us. Almost 35 percent of House members (150 representatives) support reform; nearly 39 percent (171 representatives) have an inconclusive rating; and more than 25 percent (112 representatives) are against reform.
Do you see any surprises on the list? Do your neighbors know where their representative stands?
Lastly, if you find information like this valuable, we ask that you support Immigrants' List with a contribution. When you make a contribution to Immigrants' List, you not only help get useful information like this out to the public, but you also send a message to Congress that immigration reform is an important election issue this year.
Congress is quickly moving into election mode this year. By supporting Immigrants' List today, you're letting Congress know that we're watching their actions very closely. Please show your support today.
P.S. Look for our 2010 Senate scorecard to be released very soon!=================================================================
