immigration reform government contacts

Addressing issues of immigration reform is the project of both the House of Representatives and the US Senate, a power granted to them in the US Constitution. Additionally, there are plenty of lawsuits attempting to change immigration laws via the court system.

There is not a house COMMITTEE for immigration reform, but a CAUCUS. To voice your opinion about US immigration, contact someone on the Immigration Reform Caucus, the group in the US House of Representatives addressing this issue.

The Immigration Reform Caucus (IRC) was established in May 1999 to review current immigration policy, to initiate new immigration policy and to create a much-needed forum in Congress to address both the positive and negative consequences of immigration. The organization is dedicated towards identifying legislative solutions to address the issue of illegal immigration.

As of this date, after 10 years, not one piece of legislation has passed.

The US Senate also does not have a specific committee for immigration. They have a Border Security and Enforcement First Immigration Caucus. Border Security and Enforcement First Immigration Caucus members recognize that Congress has presented the American people with a false choice in solving the illegal immigration problem – give illegal aliens amnesty or round them up and deport them en masse. The principle mission of the Caucus is to promote a true, achievable alternative: attrition through enforcement. Living illegally in the United States will become more difficult and less satisfying over time when the government – at ALL LEVELS – enforces all of the laws already on the books.

Border Security and Enforcement First Immigration Caucus I’m not sure if there is more than this, but this appears to be the main government site. As with the house, no legislation has passed as of 2009.
