Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

36 Organizations, Community, Faith, Labor Leaders Will Urge Senator Moran to Stand with Immigrant Families

Kansas City, KS.--   This Saturday, 36 organizations and over 700 community, faith and labor leaders will travel to Kansas City for a People’s Town Hall on Immigration Reform, the largest event of it’s kind in Kansas history. Leaders are hosting this public meeting to ask Kansas elected officials, especially Senator Jerry Moran, to support comprehensive immigration reform and create a pathway to citizenship for all 11 million people currently undocumented in the US.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

This week, the Senate began debating and amending S. 744, the comprehensive immigration reform bill.  Kansas Senator Jerry Moran has yet to take a public stance for or against this immigration reform bill.  He is particularly important considering his leadership position as the Chair of the Republican National Senatorial Committee.

A recent poll released by New American Economy showed that there is overwhelming bipartisan support for CIR in Kansas.  This poll indicated that 72% of likely voters support immigration reform and 58% of Kansans would more than likely vote for an elected official who votes for a path to citizenship.

A vote is expected at the end of the month.  Leaders want to remind our legislators that this issue is about more than just numbers.  This is an issue about thousands of families that are separated on a daily basis and about our economy.
