Locked out of Peter Roskam’s office again

Right now, 11 faith and clergy leaders are locked out of Peter Roskam’s West Chicago office. After dozens of requests, Peter Roskam refuses to meet with families in his own district.

We won’t leave until Peter Roskam agrees to meet and talk about why Republican House leadership refuses to give 11 million undocumented people a vote on Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

You can take action in solidarity with today’s action by calling Peter Roskam’s office or by sending him a message on Twitter. Will you take five minutes to contact Peter Roskam and tell him to give us a meeting and a vote?

You can call Peter Roskam’s district office at (630) 232-0006 and/or his DC office at (202) 225-4561.

When you get through to his staff, you can say something like:

Hello, my name is _____ and I’m calling from ____, IL in solidarity with the leaders who are at Peter Roskam’s office right now. I urge the Congressman to meet with these leaders right now and schedule a face-to-face meeting about Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Immigration reform is the right thing to do for the country, for 11 million undocumented immigrants, and it’s good politics for Republicans like Peter Roskam. Will Peter Roskam give us a meeting?

After you’ve made your call, you can also send Peter Roskam a message on Twitter. Click here to send your message.

As the House of Representatives gets closer to an extended December vacation, there’s no excuse for failing to bring a vote on immigration reform to the House floor immediately. 1100 people will continue to be deported every day while the House Republicans are home with their families for the holidays. Further inaction is inexcusable.

Will you call Peter Roskam now at (630) 232-0006 and/or his DC office at (202) 225-4561 and tell him to give us a meeting and a vote on immigration reform?

Thanks so much,
