Open Letter to Home Depot CEO by GLAHR

Dear Mr. Blake:

The undersigned, the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR) respectfully requests your support for a call to Congress and to the President of the United States for a just and comprehensive immigration reform and to put a moratorium on deportations and the resulting separation of families.

As Home Depot customers, and community members, we urge Home Depot PAC to stop donations of more than $1.2 million each year to politicians who refuse to hear our voices. We know that as a CEO, you would never stand for a band of employees stopping productivity in your corporation. You cannot allow Congress to do the same. Americans overwhelmingly want a working government and do not want to be held hostage by members of Congress who block votes in the House on key issues like comprehensive immigration reform. We are sure that the important weight of your opinion will turn enough legislators in favor of a fair, humane and positive comprehensive immigration reform and to put a moratorium on deportations as first step while Congressmen begins working on it.

We ask you, as a CEO and leader, to join other corporations that have come forward to call to fix the United States' broken immigration system.  Join us in demanding REAL leadership on Capitol Hill. We ask you to recognize this truth by coming out verbally, and in writing in support of reform and to use your important influence to reach Federal Congress with that message. We will appreciate a prompt response to this very urgent request.

Each day that goes by without reform legislation has a detrimental effect on millions of people, many of them loyal customers of your company.
