    I said I was calling to specifically support a path to citizenship.  I did this because I had read the House GOP were going to go for the guest worker angle pushed by Bush.

    I also identified right off the bat as a person of faith.  I have read that this is an area of common ground for many others.

    I brought up the scapegoating of immigrants during economic downturns, the fairness that has been sought and the enforcement that has created a net zero immigration situation which must be acknowledged among the GOP.  I talked about the immorality of exploiting strangers that have come to our land to work.  I also talked about the xenophobia of the right wing John Birch mentality and its prominence in our modern GOP.

      Congress people certainly won't support a good solution to our immigration problem if people don't encourage them to do so.  Some of them won't anyway, but we still need to step up and try.
