Supporters of immigration reform legislation in Congress are putting heat on Chicago Democratic congressman Dan Lipinski.

Pro-reformers gathered outside Rep. Lipinski’s third congressional district office to urge that he take the lead in pushing immigration reform through Congress.

Comprehensive immigration reform passed the Senate a year ago, but has yet to face a vote in the House.

Organizing for Action, which calls itself a non-partisan social advocacy group, suggested that Lipinski take a cue from ousted congressman Eric Cantor (R-Va.) as an example of how voters can turn on the immigration issue.

“He should take Eric Cantor as an example,” community organizer Marlene said. “So what we need for him to do is actually step up, pledge and lead this reform.”

Organizing for Action claims that inaction on immigration reform ultimately costs the U.S. $37 million each day and that the majority of Americans supports a solution.

      The United States of America is a melting pot comprised of many immigrants and it is the reason we are the best country in the world. Ignorance must be challenged at all cost and the only way to do this is by educating the narrow minded people.

    These new immigrants want only handouts from US taxpayers.
    In the 50’s and 60’s
    All new applicants had to prove that they would be beneficial to the USA and had to have an Affidavit of Support. A document notorized by a US citizen that they would be responsible for all expenses of the applicant and certify that they would not apply for any government aid.

    Jason & John V. your words should be broadcasted on very news station and on every sign during a pro-immigrant rally!! We all know how disturbing it is when immigrants abuse the system that veterans fought for. Liberals LOVE when our veterans turn over in their graves!
