Immigrants' List

     We cannot control the wind, but we can direct the sails. 
     Immigration reform sometimes seems like a pie in the sky idea.  When I am asked by clients what can be done to help their family members, who are waiting for years to enter the U.S. legally, I advise them to contact their elected representatives.  Although a single member of Congress is unlikely to speed the immigration process, it is important for him or her to know that the U.S. citizen constituent must wait over 10 years for a sibling to immigrate.  If the sibling is from certain countries, the wait can be over 20 years.
     Beyond contacting an elected official, there is something else that can be done:  contributing -- even if only $10.  Immigrants' List is a bipartisan political action committee that supports pro-immigrant candidates for Congress.  By contributing to Immigrants' List, as well as contributing to the election campaigns of the pro-immigrant candidates, humane comprehensive immigration reform is more likely to become a reality.
     There are U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (citizens-in-waiting) who care deeply about immigration issues.  If Congress does not know these people are willing to get them elected, though, nothing will change.
