Congress Should Pass Immigration Reform
Trying to fix our broken immigration system with temporary executive orders has now left over 800,000 immigrants with an uncertain fate. Only Congress has the power to address their status once and for all.
On average, DACA beneficiaries were brought to the United States at the age of six, and know no other country but this one. Dreamers represent some of the best and brightest in our country – they are students and workers, and the uncertainty they now face only undercuts their potential.
We, the undersigned, believe an issue of this importance that affects the lives of so many immigrants requires a substantive debate in Congress, and durable reforms enacted into law. It is now more important than ever for our elected leaders to begin solving the problems with our immigration system – to come together and pass meaningful immigration reform that recognizes the contributions of immigrants, strengthens our economy, enhances border security, and addresses the status of those here without documentation – including the Dreamers.
