Fixing our nation’s broken immigration system is an economic and moral imperative, and we have the opportunity to help make it happen. As the House Majority Leader, Representative Eric Cantor (R-VA) has the power to push for the vote that would make comprehensive immigration reform a reality.
Congressman Cantor has spoken eloquently about the American Jewish immigrant experience and the urgent need to reform our broken system. At the same time, he has refused to let comprehensive immigration reform with a path to citizenship come to a vote in the House.
Call Representative Cantor’s office with this simple message: Let your people vote.
Right now, 11 million undocumented immigrants live, work, and raise families in the United States without basic civil rights or labor protections, without access to many services, and in constant fear of persecution and deportation.
By allowing a vote for immigration reform in the House, Rep. Eric Cantor can change this. But he won’t do it on his own. He needs to hear from you!
