Things you can do:
Recognize that the issue
of Immigration in the United States is linked to the complexity of
low wage or non-existent jobs in other countries, in trade agreements
that are unfair to developing coutries and the movement of peoples

Keep adovcating with US legislators to address the
Immigration issues in the United States. The Congress most likely
not address this issue again in 2008.
