NYT REPORTS ON THE SUCCESS OF THE ANTI-IMMIGRANT MOVEMENT

Rate this Entry

The Times reports on how NumbersUSA manages to get its members to flood Congress with emails, faxes and phone calls and were able to project strength despite its relatively small number of supporters. Rather than focusing on how unfair it is that this minority won this latest battle on comprehensive reform legislation, we should learn from them. The pro-immigration movement has the advantage of having REAL numbers of supporters and when the time comes that this movement can truly mobilize the base of supporters out there who agree with its positions, then the anti-immigrant movement will be crushed. With 30 million+ Latino US citizens, activist groups like Immigration Voice starting to gain momentum and experienced advocacy groups like AILA, HIAS, the National Immigration Forum and the Essential Worker Immigration Coalition, we can go on to win the future battles.

    We can. What needs to happen first is people need to know how easy it is to lift their phone and call their lawmakers.

    the main point is this...when you are driven passionately (either via hate or some other feeling) you can transcend you own personal inhibitions for the cause.

    what we need to learn is make the message singular, make outreach simple and the process streamlined so that mobilization for a telephone campaign occurs instantaneously.

    Greg,

    AILA/AILF needs to work with organizations like Immigration Voice. Is that happening in the current discussions with USCIS over the July visa bulletin snafu?

    We will see about money issue, when it is time to raise money i think that all the business organization will remembered the failure of the bill....by the way it`s not a case that the dem are getting more money than the republicans,...we will see. In any case, AILA should work more closly with Immigration Voice.
