This comes today in an email from Catholic Charities USA (an organization of the Catholic bishops of the United States):
Tell Senator Marco Rubio ‘Thank You” for His Work with the Gang of Eight
Dear Supporter of immigration reform,
Organizations opposed to reform are flooding U.S. Senator Marco Rubio’s office with calls, messages and faxes attacking him for his support of immigration reform. A recent Washington Post article reported that one group and “its members have inundated the office of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) with 100,000 faxes.”
Senator Rubio needs to hear from people throughout the country that they are looking for his leadership in the Senate on this issue and that he must continue to support immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship for the undocumented.
Call Senator Rubio’s office at 202-224-3041 or send him an email at http://www.rubio.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/email-senator-rubio?p=Contact and thank him for his outstanding work on the Gang of Eight and encourage him to continue with his immigration reform efforts.
Looks like something worth acting on. I have.

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), the official domestic anti-poverty agency of the U.S. bishops, has approved special grants totaling nearly $1 million to mobilize Catholics on behalf of comprehensive immigration reform and to prepare Catholic institutions for the prospects of reform legislation.
