Urge Congress to pass immigration reform

Urge Congress to pass immigration reform

Now is the time to enact immigration reform to create a fair roadmap to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who are waiting to contribute to American society.

Most of the 11 million have lived in America for more than 10 years. They are members of our communities and churches, and they are our friends and family members.

They are as American as apple pie and baseball. They are also hard workers and only want to build a better life for their families.

Immigration is what our country was founded on. I urge our senators and congressional representatives to pass immigration reform that reflects our nation's values and our history as a nation of immigrants.
