 The Americans for legal immigration website seems to be focused on news articles and “resources on Illegal Immigration reform” but also contains links to facts and history on illegal immigration, one link goes to a page on how to report illegal immigrants. The organization claims to “Represent Americans of every race, political party, and walk of life” which is difficult to believe as they are very critical of democrat Barack  Obama calling him “the worst president in US history on the issue of illegal immigration”; though they also criticize George W. Bush calling him "horrible on [the] issue” of immigration. The language used when referring to Latino immigrants also make it difficult to believe they represent Americans of every race, the word illegal is used a staggering amount on the site and the dehumanizing phrase illegal aliens is also used.

Latinos United for Immigration Reform
Latinos United is an organization looking for immigration reform to allow immigrants to gain legal citizenship easily some of their goals are to

Provide a Path to Citizenship for Undocumented Immigrants
Restructure the Immigration System
Preserve Family Unity

The website offers facts, history and general information on immigration reform. It has more links to social media sites and has more of a focus on pro active campaigning than ALIPAC, with a visible "Act Now" tab at the top of the webpage and a large amount of the homepage encouraging people to write to the president and congress asking for immigration reform. The website is also available in Spanish.

Both websites are fairly well designed but The ALIPAC sites layout is cluttered, it looks slightly less professional than the Latino United website and uses a harsher font and colour scheme.
