Last week, we kicked off the “Do Your Jobs” campaign to remind Congress of all the immigrants who will be working hard to produce our food and drink this holiday season. Throughout the rest of the year, we will be profiling immigrant workers like Alejandro (below), who work every day to contribute to our country. As Congress heads toward yet another long recess, it’s past time that House Republicans take action, and pass immigration reform for the 11 million.
Alejandro is on call 24/7.
Alejandro is a sheepherder based in Western Colorado. He’s responsible for 1200 head of sheep, protecting them from predators and injuries. Alejandro works 11 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide for his wife and two daughters, who live in Peru.
“I want to see immigration reform passed for the sake of the millions of people who are living in the shadows and suffering constant fear,” Alejandro told us. “Those people are working hard every day to support themselves and their families and many are suffering deportation and separation. They deserve better.”
Alejandro is doing his job. Rep. Tipton, why aren’t you doing yours?
It’s time to give Alejandro a vote.
