9/20: Action Alert! National Call-In Day to STOP Congress
from Passing Anti-Immigrant Bills!

September 20 National Call-In Day!

National Immigrant Solidarity Network

On Wednesday September 20, the U.S. House will be discuss and voting several racist anti-immigrant legislation (see above). After last week the passage of last week's (9/14) Secure Fence Act of 2006 H.R. 6061 (The Final Vote Rall Call). The anti-immigrant forces in Washington D.C. want to push their enforcement-only immigrant bills (see above) before November election. First House votes, then the Senate vote, and the possbility push for Conference Committee and finalize the Bill for President Bush to sign. Therefore, we need to waste no time to mobilize to stop it!

On Wednesday September 20, we urge you to CALL, FAX AND MAIL your elected officials, SAY NO TO THE RACIST ANTI-IMMIGRANT BILLS:

H.R. 4844 - Federal Election Integrity Act of 2006 ("Voter ID bill")
H.R. 6089 - Illegal Immigrant Deterrence Act
H.R. 6090 - Immigration Enforcement Act
H.R. 6091 - Border Security Enhancement Act

Talking Point (by: New American Opportunity Campaign)

"Congress should stop the piecemeal, enforcement-only approach to immigration reform. I support a comprehensive bill that reunites families, legalizes the undocumented population, and provides future immigrants with a safe and legal way to live and work in the U.S."

or we'll not vote for you at the November election!

U.S.-Mexico border fencing passes House - again
Republican Congress votes to build wall of shame

September 15, 2006
National Immigrant Solidarity Network


The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday (9/14) voted in favor of building a fence along portions of the border with Mexico, the Secure Fence Act (H.R. 6061), this is no doubt a racist anti-immigrant bill, the vote had more to do with election year politics than solving immigration issues.

The Republican-written bill, approved on a vote of 283-138, calls for construction of about 700 miles of fence along the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, includes:

- 361 miles from Calexico, California to Douglas, Arizona
- 176 miles from Laredo to Brownsville, Texas
- 51 miles from Del Rio to Eagle Pass, Texas
- 88 miles from El Paso, Texas to Columbus, New Mexico
- 22 miles in Tecate, California near San Diego

The anti-immigrant forces in the Congress, understand they cannot finalize the anti-immigrant legislation to become the law this year, so they are trying to appeal to the "fears" of people, the measure was a charade designed to help Republicans ahead of the November 7 elections.

National Immigrant Solidarity Network will call for a conference call very soon to discuss the strategies how we can responds to this before the November election.

Please stay turned!
