The lobby visit is part of a national lobby day involving working family advocates from across the country. The lobby visits will also coincide with a massive mobilization the week of June 10-14 encouraging millions of working families across the country to contact their members of Congress to demand fair and compassionate immigration reform.
“The time is now for a fair and comprehensive immigration process that includes strong protections for all workers,” said Stephanie Bloomingdale, Secretary-Treasurer of the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO. “Which is why the Wisconsin State AFL-CIO and the members we represent, along with a diverse coalition of immigrant community, faith groups and other organizations across the country are mobilizing our communities to call on Congress this week to pass an immigration bill that protects all working families. The unstoppable momentum around grassroots actions across the country, along with broad support for comprehensive immigration reform, ensures that we WILL have a pathway to citizenship in 2013 for the more than 11 million aspiring Americans who live and contribute to our communities.”
