Action Needed: Support Immigration Reform
After more than a
decade of debate, Congress is at a critical phase for comprehensive immigrate
reform. In order for the priorities of the construction industry to be
included, contractors must contact
their Members of Congress immediately.
AGC has provided
several options for members to engage with their elected representative during
the August congressional recess. We encourage you to complete as many of the
following grassroots activities your schedule allows during the month of
August: visit your member of congress’ local office; write to your member of
congress; invite your member of congress to your business or a local employer
group meeting; or speak out at a town hall meeting. You can also make the case
for immigration reform in the media by writing an op-ed piece, a letter to the
editor, or calling into a talk radio show.
The battle for
immigration reform is not a spectator sport. In order to enact reform,
supporters must stand up and vocalize the need for reform. To get more involved,
contact AGC or visit our Legislative
information, please contact Jim Young at (202) 547-0133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
