Take Action This Week for Immigration Reform

Kevin Fung

by Kevin Fung - Online Editor

We need to let our elected officials know that we want comprehensive immigration reform. We here at Long Island Wins as well as our allies all across the nation have been fighting for the past several years to promote commonsense immigration policy that works for everyone and brings families back together.

We are closer than ever to achieving that goal, but there is much more that needs to be done.

This week, you can lend your support to the cause by calling our state senators, Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, and letting them know that you want just and humane immigration reform. We want reform that truly is comprehensive and all inclusive, that includes a clear and direct pathway to full citizenship and prioritizes family unity.

Please dial 1-866-940-2439 to be connected with your members of Congress.

In addition, the New York State Dream Act has been sitting on the table for far too long. Use this time of action to also reach out to Governor Andrew Cuomo to urge him to include funding for the NYS Dream Act into his budget.

Governor Cuomo’s office can be reached at 1-866-584-0773.

We are closer than ever to finally having comprehensive immigration reform. With all of our efforts, we can push our elected officials to act now.
