Action Alert — March 15, 2017

Happy Advocacy Wednesday!
The President’s recent Executive Orders (EOs) not only damage our nation’s proud history of being a country of immigrants, the EOs will harm businesses, economy, families, and communities.  While the President says he’s only going after the “bad hombres,” it’s just a matter of time before the President, his administration, and some in Congress target their sights on all immigrants coming to this nation, whether to work or reunite with a close family member.  The time is now to get businesses to make their voices heard on immigration.
AILA Chicago members are encouraged to ask their business clients – business owners, employers, and entrepreneurs – to sign onto the letter below urging elected officials to put aside partisanship and recognize that reforming our immigration system is vital to our future as a great, prosperous, and generous nation.
How to Sign-On Business Clients to Letter
AILA’s goal is to share this sign-on letter with members of Congress during National Day of Action on April 6, 2017.
  1. Ask your business clients to consider showing their support for immigrants by signing onto the “Businesses Stand with Immigrants” letter.
  2. Obtain permission to sign-on your client.
  3. Register your client by completing this form, only the name of the business and state it is located in will appear on the letter. Form Available Here
Thanks so much for your help with this!
