Only Members who have co-sponsored in at least one category are listed below. Thank them and ask them to sign up for the bills they haven't yet co-sponsored.

65% of Americans disapprove of Pres. Obama's handling of immigration, according to a June 2014 Gallup poll. It's one of the highest disapproval ratings since Gallup starting taking the pulse of Americans on the issue in 2010. There is a wide gap between the opinions of Republicans and Democrats with only 8% of Republicans approving and 65% of Democrats. Independents are more closely aligned with Republicans with only 25% supporting his handling of the issue.
