4. Lobbying Congressman Peter Roskam and others
Unlike other local politicians Roskam has been very quiet about immigration reform and his position . We need to educate him and his staff on the need for reform and how important this is to his constituents. We need to let him and his staff know about the various groups working on this issue in his district and build relationships.

Please contact his office during the week to let him know how immigration reforms affects jobs business and families in our communities
