I’m using a provided form letter, but it’s seems like something worth doing.

"I just signed a letter thanking President Obama for taking action against Arizona's anti-immigrant law, SB 1070. I've also asked him to take the next step and terminate the 287g program, a failed experiment that lets local police and sheriffs enforce federal immigration law and deport workers, students and tax-payers at unprecedented rates of 1,000 per day. Join me in thanking President Obama for the law suit against Arizona's SB 1070, and asking him to take it further by terminating the 287g program. This policy drives a wedge between local law enforcement and immigrant communities, diverts funds from the crime fighting police should be doing, and further divides our country. Even worse, 287g sets a precedent that is now being picked by states like Arizona, which are using the existence of 287g to justify the passage of damaging laws like SB 1070."
