As originally reported on January 29 by this outlet regarding Senator Chuck Schumer’s use of the word “illegals” on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” and after repeated conversations with to Schumer’s office that have lead nowhere, we (along with our friends from Cuéntame and and Presente.org) just wanted to take a moment and remind Senator Schumer that real immigration leaders know that words matter.
We already sent several tweets, and all we are asking is that Senator Schumer respond and do the right thing. Be a true immigration leader, and not just a politician who is choosing the Issue of the Month to pander to U.S. Latino voters.

Join us and others who believe that true immigration reform also involves changing the dialogue and the words we use.
