Bibles & Badges for Immigration Reform

Bibles, badges, and business for immigration reform--that's what today's LA Times calls the disparate elements now pushing Republican congressional representatives to cooperate with President Obama's goal of making progress on immigrant issues.

"Traditional pillars of the Republican base, such as police groups, evangelical pastors and the US Chamber of Commerce, have begun to push skeptical GOP lawmakers to change federal immigration laws to allow most of the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants to apply for legal status.",0,1627048.story

Email and tweet your representatives and senators to do it.  

As the president said in his inaugural address today, we have to find "a better way to welcome immigrants.  Our bright young students and engineers should be enlisted in our work force rather than expelled."

Do your part--contact your representatives!
