SEIU members from Local 26 and Healthcare Minnesota were among the group that knocked doors Saturday morning to talk with voters about immigration reform. The volunteers had more than 50 conversations in Eden Prairie, which is represented by Rep. Erik Paulsen.
SEIU is part of a broad coalition advocating for immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship. The coalition includes business groups, labor, faith communities and immigrant rights advocates. Right now the bipartisan Senate immigration bill has stalled in the House of Representatives. Advocates of immigration reform are urging Minnesota’s representatives to give America a vote on immigration reform this year. Recent polling shows a majority of voters – including Republicans and Independents – want Congress to pass immigration reform this year.
