Dear Senator/Representative:

I am writing today to urge you to support common sense immigration reform that will give hard-working immigrants an opportunity to earn American citizenship.  It is essential that Congress fix our broken immigration system this year.

I am particularly concerned about the young immigrants who were brought here as children, raised in communities and educated at our schools.  They are our friends, neighbors and classmates.  These undocumented youth currently have no way of ever becoming Americans.  No matter how hard working or successful, these young people face deportation to countries they may not remember where people speak languages they may not know.  Congress must fix this.

The current broken system fails all of us.  By preventing talented immigrants from contributing fully to our economy, we both hamper our economic growth and waste tremendous resources on an enforcement system that all agree does not work.  The cost to deport all of those here without proper status would be staggering, with estimates that it costs $23,000 to deport a single immigrant.  This makes no economic sense.

As Congress considers how to overhaul our nation’s immigration laws this year, I hope that you will keep these views in mind.  This issue is extremely important to me and to our nation’s future.  Please support common sense immigration reform and finally fix this broken system.

Thank you for your consideration.
