VIDEO: How We Will Make Real Immigration Reform a Reality!

On Wednesday night, 60,000 people joined what was an incredible call to action on overhauling our nation’s broken immigration laws.

Today, we’re releasing a new video that features Congressman Luis Gutierrez unveiling his principles for reform in October, and which calls on all of us to help build the movement for real immigration reform:

We all know our immigration system needs fixing.

Immigration has been used as a wedge to obstruct progress on everything from the Stimulus to health care reformeven the 2010 Census. There are many skeptics out there who believe Congress doesn’t have what it takes to pass reform in 2010 – or that even if they have what it takes, they don’t have the nerve to do it.

But just last week, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano reinforced the administration’s commitment to reform, laying out the details for why this push is different, and why we need to get it done.

What’s more, the national movement for real immigration reform is growing—and we are only getting bigger.

On Wednesday night, there were over 1,000 house parties in 45 states, with supporters gathered together anxiously to hear what they could do to help make reform a reality. All across the country, people are primed and ready to do whatever it takes to win this battle, and if you are not one of those people, now is the time to join the fight.

In 2007, opponents of immigration reform took credit for stopping legislation in its tracks, overwhelming Congressional offices with a flood of angry phone calls and faxes. They took control of the debate and scared the pants off of vulnerable members of Congress.

This time around will be different, but it will take all of us to make real immigration reform a reality.

  1. There are so many things wrong with Robert Gittelson’s claim that after downsizing to stay afloat businesses hang on to their “undocumented” (politically correct term) workers because they have more experience. Are we abandoning the old argument that “Americans won’t do these jobs” for “Americans will do these jobs but can’t get them because ‘undocumented’ workers have more experience”? I maintain that “illegal aliens” (term used in Federal regulations) are in most cases more experienced in certain jobs than unemployed Americans because greedy employers passed them over for cheap, immigrant labor. The facts are out there. Mr. Gittelson either ignores them because he cannot use them to support an unsupportable thesis or he is terribly naive. If anyone wishes to gauge the true cost of illegal immigration to this country they should consult true immigration reform organizations like Numbersusa and FAIR. They will never get it from many of our politicians and the pro-amnesty organizations that support them and, unfortunately, they will not get them from Mr. Gittelson.

    While living in England, I heard an unforgettable expression: “mutton dressed up like lamb”. This expression might be appropriate in describing Mr. Gittelson’s defense of illegal immigration.
