On the April 23 anniversary of Cesar Chavez' passing, UFW President Arturo S Rodriguez talks about why farm workers are camped outside of Rep. McCarthy's office and invites the public to join the 1,000+ farm workers as they march the next day.


TAKE ACTION:

The anniversary of Cesar's April 23 passing marked 300 days since the US Senate voted in favor of a truly bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill that calls for a roadmap to citizenship for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the country. Since that time, the House of Representatives has failed to call a vote on this issue because Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and others have been doing everything they can to block immigration reform.

We believe there are enough House votes to pass immigration reform and that a majority are prepared to vote for comprehensive immigration reform legislation. Because of this, House Minority Leader Pelosi recently introduced a legislative move called a "Discharge Petition" or more simply a "Demand a Vote Petition". If 218 Members of Congress sign on to the Discharge Petition, we can break through the partisan gridlock that is silencing the majority of Members in the House of Representatives who want to pass reform. We can get then get the immigration bill onto the floor for a vote — with or without Speaker Boehner’s say-so.

The House bill, HR 15, is currently the only tangible option to fix our nation's broken immigration system. If your Representative would sign on to the Discharge Petition as well, we could get closer to a vote. Our immigrant families and our nation's agricultural community won't accept more excuses. Doing nothing is not an option.

Be part of the action. Sending an email to your Representative and Rep. McCarthy today.
