TIME TO SWAMP THE SPEAKER'S STAFF WITH CALLS
FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION ON MANDATORY E-VERIFY
USE OUR TOLL-FREE 1-800 NUMBER
TO MAKE YOUR PHONE CALL
Yes, Speaker Boehner (R-Ohio) has some big items hanging over his head (like the debt ceiling), but that can't be an excuse for delaying action on putting Americans back to work by moving illegal aliens out of their jobs.
TODAY is the day to get the attention of the Speaker's staff that Americans want action THIS SUMMER on immigration and jobs.
ACTION: Please make an immediate phone call to the office of the Speaker of the House.
STEP 1: CALL THE TOLL-FREE NUMBER
Because of generous contributions from a little more than 1% of our NumbersUSA faxers last month, we are able to provide for free activist phoning in this campaign.
If NumbersUSA people really respond, you may have trouble getting through at first. If so, please keep trying. We want to help Speaker Boehner feel that moving illegal aliens out of their jobs and replacing with unemployed Americans is truly a top priority of Americans this summer.
STEP 2: ASK SWITCHBOARD TO CONNECT YOU
Ask the operator to give you the office of the Speaker of the House.
STEP 3: START YOUR MESSAGE
You will get a staffer or a voice mail.
Please start with ONE of these openings:
(a) I'm calling to urge the Speaker to put millions of Americans back to work by passing a mandatory E-Verify bill this summer.
(b) Please tell the Speaker that Americans need H.R. 2164 to come to the floor for a vote this summer and put unemployed Americans back to work.
(c) Chairman Smith's mandatory E-Verify bill needs to be voted out of the House before August recess.
(d) If Republicans really care about jobs, they need to move a mandatory E-Verify bill out of the House before the August recess.
STEP 4: FINISH YOUR MESSAGE
Just say a couple of things and then get off the call to allow more people to call in. Give one or two of the following talking points.
(a) The Republicans have controlled the House for six months and done nothing about getting illegal aliens out of jobs that unemployed Americans want. It's past time to bring a mandatory E-Verify bill to the floor.
(b) You may think you have lots of time to take up immigration issues, but 22 million Americans who can't find a full-time job are desperate for you to act. Chairman Smith's mandatory E-Verify bill would start opening up the 7 million jobs now held by illegal aliens in construction and service and manufacturing.
(c) If you don't start moving an E-Verify bill next week, you are going to run out of time to pass it before the August recess. Jobless Americans deserve better.
STEP 5: REPORT BACK TO US
