Faith based immigration resource

The Catholic Campaign for Immigration Reform has an excellent website up with information and actions on the "Border Protection, Anti-Terrorism, and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005" (HR4437) and "The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act" (S1033/ HR2330), introduced by Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA).

Their organization Justice for Immigrants is an umbrella group for numerous Catholic charities and faith based groups working for immigration reform and providing immigrant aid and services.

Along with information and actions, the site provides links to immigrant legal services, media links, and links to all member organizations.

I wrote my Congresswoman: "Dear Senator; I am an American-born, half Mexican, half Italian citizen and I am writing you to express my desire for you to pass into Law HR4437! Coming to the United States as an immigrant in order to obtain the American Dream is wonderful, but part of the American Dream should include becoming an American Citizen. I am married to a Mexican woman who is, at the moment, a legal resident on her way to becoming a U.S. Citizen and we believe that immigrants should come here legally.
Please don't take heed to these people claiming that this country needs illegal workers and all that about them doing jobs Americans won't do. We all know that any business would prefer paying lower wages to anyone who will accept it...I don't need to go on about that and insult your intelligence....
Let us finally do what is right about this decade-long issue and pass the means to enforce the Law."
