Tell Senator Kirk to keep families together!

Date: 
02/27/2013

Dear Friends,

We are joining with our allies at the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights to support the Keeping Families Together Story Tour. Over the next three weeks, more than 500 family members will join the tour and travel more than 20,000 miles to demand immigration reform. The tour will elevate the voices of families that have been splintered because of our patchwork of failed immigration policies.

The Keeping Families Together Story Tour was launched in partnership with the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), a coalition of the largest grassroots immigrant rights organizations. Along with FIRM we have issued a March 21st deadline to the Senate to introduce a comprehensive immigration bill that contains a path to citizenship.

For the 25 days from February 25th to the March 21st deadline, Senators will hear stories of separated spouses doing their best to raise their families, children left in foster care because their parents were deported, families who don’t know when they will be reunited again.

Please help us by contacting Senator Kirk and your Congressman to vote for a generous and inclusive comprehensive immigration bill that protects our hardworking immigrant families.

Senator Kirk - Chicago Office: (312) 886-3506

Too many children left without one or both parents!
