Two weeks ago, the U.S. Senate passed a comprehensive immigration reform bill with bipartisan support. Now the fight moves to the House of Representatives — and OFA supporters have already begun to act.
On Tuesday, OFA volunteers held a national call day of action, where supporters all across the country organized more than 100 phone banks, from Lebanon, Pa., to Waco, Texas, to John Boehner's home state in Springfield, Ohio. Nearly 600 volunteers made more than 20,000 calls in a single day.
