If appealing to your humanity won't work, maybe appealing to your pocketbook is enough. From Elise Foley at Huffington Post:
But other conservatives point to reports like American Action Network's analysis that reform would lead to broad economic gains. The group based its analysis on data from the Congressional Budget Office -- which found the bill would cut the deficit$685 billion over the next 20 years -- and a study by Regional Economic Models, Inc.According to the American Action Network report, at least 7,000 jobs would be created in each district, with an average of nearly 14,000 per district, based on temporary workers and permanent immigration through green cards.
American Action Network also created a tool that shows the estimated job growth in each district. It reveals that some top Republicans who are being lobbied to support the bill would see large gains in their districts if the bill became law. The group's analysis estimated that the Senate bill would create nearly 17,000 new jobs over the next decade in House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy's (R-Calif.) district, while House Speaker John Boehner's (R-Ohio) district would gain almost 11,000 jobs.
