PROMISES MADE —WILL THEY BE KEPT?
LET OUR SENATORS KNOW YOU EXPECT A BIPARTISAN LAW TO PROTECT DREAMERS
Sen. Mitch McConnell is allowing a real floor debate in the Senate this week to discuss Dreamers – a positive step. The goal is to find a bipartisan compromise that can get at least 60 votes in the Senate, the minimum needed to pass most substantive matters. Lawmakers are looking for the legislation to provide some form of legal protection for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, while also bolstering immigration enforcements. Nobody knows how it will turn out. Our Senators need to know we are watching them and expecting them to fulfill our country’s promise to Dreamers. They must do more than craft a bill – it must become law.
PROTECT THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT – VOTE 2/15
EVERY DAY THERE’S A NEW INDIGNITY
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (law since 1990) is designed to provide people with disabilities equal access to employment, government services, public accommodations and businesses, and transportation services. Title III of the ADA requires businesses to proactively remove obstacles that prevent people with disabilities from accessing their establishments. However, businesses have resisted Title III for decades and have now pressured Congress to pass a law, the ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017, to drastically limit Title III enforcement.
The ADA Education and Reform Act, H.R. 620, would eliminate all incentives for businesses to proactively ensure their businesses are accessible to people with disabilities. Instead, people with disabilities would have to notify businesses when their rights are violated, wait six months for the business to act to address issues, and only then bring the matter to court.
Call your representative to express your insistence that this hurtful bill not pass.
