H.R. 4437 will:

Allow for undocumented (and even some legal) immigrants, including the majority of farm workers, to be prosecuted as aggravated felons--which means they would be subject to jail time and potentially barred from future legal immigration.

Broaden the definition of "alien smuggling" so that anyone who comes into contact with an undocumented immigrant, such as a church or family member, can be charged as a criminal.

Tear families apart by deporting the parents of 3 million U.S. citizen children.
Please let your U.S. Senator and Senate Judiciary Chair Arlen Specter know a punitive bill such as H.R. 4437 is unacceptable. http://www.ufwaction.org/campaign/hr4437feb/k5d3i2z7wejbn? Tell them you expect the Senate to come up with a real solution. Please send your e-mail urging comprehensive immigration reform such as AgJobs (S. 359).
