It's really not complicated: The House could pass comprehensive immigration reform today if it simply held a vote.
That's why, starting today, OFA is going public with a list of the lawmakers we believe are the key to getting comprehensive immigration reform passed.
It starts with House leadership, who -- even though the votes are there -- are still standing in the way. One leader, Rep. Paul Ryan, is on the record saying there will be a vote soon. Now, it's up to OFA volunteers to keep the pressure on in every way we know how.
Even if you aren't represented by one of these key lawmakers, we all have a role to play in making sure we pass this historic legislation.
Add your name to call on Speaker John Boehner and House leaders to hold a vote on immigration reform.
With every day that goes by without fixing our broken immigration system, we're missing the opportunity to create thousands of jobs, reduce the deficit by an estimated $800 billion, and strengthen the middle class.
The Senate passed a comprehensive reform bill this summer. All signs indicate that reform could pass the House if John Boehner would just hold a vote.
OFA's role is to put pressure on the lawmakers who hold the key to making sure a vote is held. That's why we're naming names -- and it starts today with House leadership.
You can help today by calling on House leaders to hold a vote:
