The Campaign Reform Immigration for America has prioritized 12 Senators in 9 priority States. These include:
- New York: Schumer and Gillibrand
- Colorado: Bennet and Udall
- Ohio: Voinovich
- Indiana: Lugar
- California: Boxer
- Illinois: Durbin (who is focused on Giannoulias)
- Nevada: Reid
- Washington: Cantwell and Murray
- Virginia: Warner
In California Senator Boxer will prove crucial in addressing Immigration Reform this year. For the next 19 days we urge all member organizations of the CA Table to focus on our Senator. What we want from the Senator is demonstrated on the asks that we conveyed on our meeting last Thursday with her State Director.
1. That she call Senator Schumer and urge him to introduce his principles. 2. Face to face meeting with CA leaders to strategize how to move CIR in 2010 3. Participate in a public activity that generates momentum for CIR in 2010 (her presence on March 21st would count).
We ask everyone to sign on the letter attached by Thursday March 4th in order to get this to the Senator asap. I will be coordinating this effort so please forward to me relevant information described below.
If your organization can sign on to this letter, please reply with:
· The organization’s name, as it should be listed, and city/state
· Name of contact person
· Email address for contact person
We will only be listing the organization and city/state. The letter will be posted later for individual endorsements.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial "outside agitator" idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds."
