May 22, 2013 Update
Despite the aggressive advocacy work of thousands of camp advocates, ACA, and other cultural exchange organizations, last night the Senate Judiciary Committee passed the Immigration Reform Bill (S744) without eliminating the provisions that would endanger the camp counselor and camp support staff cultural exchange program.
Here’s an article about it: http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/301207-senate-judiciary-committee-advances-immigration-reform-bill-with-13-5-vote
Today we will be assessing and developing a new strategy for advocacy with the entire Senate as it will now move to the Senate floor for debate. We will be conferring with other organizations that have a stake in the cultural exchange programs in America. We will have a new call to action at www.ACAcamps.org soon!
