LGBTI Immigration Equality

Via Immigration Equality:

Rep. Jerrold Nadler plans to reintroduce the Uniting American Families Act on
Feb. 12.

You can make the bill a success by convincing your Representative to support the bill from Day One. Reintroducing the bill with as many cosponsors as possible will show powerful momentum for the rights of gay and lesbian binational couples!

Please call your Representative and ask them to be an original cosponsor of the "Uniting American Families Act of 2009." It’s easy!

**Find out who your U.S. House Representative is.
Go to http://www.congressmerge.com/, enter your address, and you will be provided the name of your U.S. Representative.

**Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202)224-3121 and ask to be connected to your U.S. Representative.

**Tell your representative’s staff:

I am calling to ask Representative ________________ to be an original cosponsor of the Uniting American Families Act of 2009. To cosponsor, he/she must contact Rep. Jerrold Nadler who is the lead sponsor.

The U.S. government discriminates against gay and lesbian binational couples by not allowing us to sponsor our foreign-born life partners for immigration. Because of this, we face the terrible choice of separating from the person we love or leaving our country. As Americans, we should not have to choose between family and country. Please ask Rep. _________________ to cosponsor the Uniting American Families Act of 2009 by reaching out to Rep. Nadler before February 11.

Thanks for asking your member of Congress to celebrate love this Valentine’s Day by cosponsoring UAFA!

That's gotta be super-super-close to your heart. (It is for me, too--my wife's an immigrant, though she became a citizen before we got married.)

Congratulations to you and Em, and I hope this roadblock is blasted out of your way!
