Talking Points

These talking points are meant to give AILA members a quick and easy way of staying on message when they head into an interview – the material is consistent with what AILA spokespeople are saying publicly and can help you avoid wandering off topic.

Talking Points on Immigration Reform

These points are not meant to be read word-for-word like a script but should help you focus in on the core message you want to relate on a specific topic or issue—try to work your core messages in as often as possible during an interview.

Don’t just use these for interviews though: you can also use them as the framework or as seed material to create other types of media and public outreach tools such as letters-to-the-editor, speeches, blogs, op-eds, editorials, and press releases.

We’ll be updating these in response to changing press interest. If you have ideas about new subjects you’d like to see us cover, please to reach out to the AILA communications team via A limited number of printed talking points booklets are available.
