We’re naming names for immigration reform
The House of Representatives has sat on a bipartisan-supported immigration bill for six months. Despite the fact that the bill has support, House leadership has failed to take it up.
OFA is holding these representatives accountable. Volunteers are going door to door in key districts to keep up the pressure. See who OFA is calling out and join the fight for immigration reform: barackobama.com/immigration-list/
What immigration action looks like
Organizing for Action has been working hard to make immigration reform a reality. The Senate passed a bipartisan bill this summer — now we’re doubling down on our organizing efforts to pass reform through the House. Watch these highlights from our on-the-ground work so far, then say you’ll join this fight: barackobama.com/immigration-action
About 75 people held a rally on a recent Friday outside Republican Congressman Gary Miller’s office in Rancho Cucamonga, east of Los Angeles.
“Congressman Gary Miller, your constituents from the 31st district are holding you accountable,” a woman shouted into a microphone. “Over 50 percent of the voters in your 31st district are Latino or Asian-American immigrants.”
All Steve King’s Men
Whether comparing immigrants to dogs or accusing DREAMers of being drug mules, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) can’t see that his anti-immigrant views aren’t shared by the American people.
But King is not alone in the Republican Party. When the House votes on immigration legislation, the majority of his colleagues follow his lead 9 out of 10 times.
And when it comes to extreme anti-immigrant rhetoric, King has plenty of followers in the Republican Party.
