Hundreds of thousands of young immigrants are facing an uncertain future.
These hardworking young men and women were brought to this country through no fault of their own, and they represent some of the best and brightest in our country. They are students and workers, earning their way, providing for their families and contributing to our communities. Without legal certainty, these Dreamers will be unable to plan their futures, undermining their ability to work, study and serve.
Tell Congress to seize the current opportunity and agree on a narrow compromise that solves the matter at hand. This first step towards improving our immigration system should focus on addressing the status of Dreamers and improving our border security, in hopes of avoiding a similar situation in the future. Only then can other reforms to our overall immigration system be addressed. It is time for leadership to seize this opportunity.
