Act to Move Forward with CIR, thus end retrogression!

My fellow PBSN.gif members let us help each other to end the retrogression issue... happy.gif

Urge Your Senators to Move Forward with CIR! (Comprehensive Immigration Reform)

From: Americal Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA)

Although Senate leaders designated immigration reform as one of their top ten legislative priorities, they have yet to introduce a comprehensive immigration reform bill. Time is growing short - urge your senators put aside partisan politics and move forward with much-needed reform now!
