We wanted to share this exciting news from our friends over at Reform Immigration For America, written by Rachel LaBruyere:

UPDATE from Reform Immigration For America: So many people are registered that we have removed the signup link, which is locked. But you can still find a party in your area!

Today, November 18th, Representative Luis Gutierrez will hold a national telephonic town hall to lay out how we are going to win this fight. Thousands of people will be joining the call to hear what Rep. Gutierrez has to say and to ask their questions and voice their concerns.

Oh, and we should probably mention there are nearly 900 house parties happening across the country that night. Attendees will be joining the call alongisde other immigration reform supporters in order to energize and build the movement for reform.

Oddly enough, this past Saturday, some of the most vocal immigration reform opponents hosted parties of their own. A whopping 50 parties were reported, with a few where counter-protestors actually out-numbered the party goers.

What does this mean?

We have the momentum on our side. We have people across the country who are ready to take action. We have what it takes to make immigration reform in 2010 a reality.

And YOU are going to be the deciding factor. Will you join us on Wednesday night to party for immigration reform?

Recently, DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano talked about why the fight for immigration reform is different and stronger this time around. On Wednesday, let’s show her just how much stronger we are!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
