Call your representatives and demand immigration action

We need to work together for comprehensive immigration reform

I appreciated your editorial in the paper. After reading it, I immediately called all mentioned Republican politicians: Doc Hastings, Jaime Herrera Beutler, Dave Reichert, and Cathy McMorris Rodgers and advised them to read your editorial and to work together for comprehensive immigration reform [“Get some real work done, Congress,” Opinion, Dec. 3].

I called because when I tried to email U.S. Rep. McMorris Rodgers my efforts were thwarted as I am not in her district.

I recommend that everyone call these delegates and let them know you want action. It’s the least we can do while immigration activists starve themselves on the National Mall to bring attention to this issue.

— Sybil Davis, Burien
