Immigration Reform Now: Moving from a Message of Hope to Delivering Promises

In recognition of President Obama's endorsement of comprehensive reform of the US immigration system we ask President Obama to stop immigration raids and other enforcement actions that tear families apart.  We urge the President to work with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to lower the Citizenship fee to better ensure that thousands of hardworking members of our society can fully participate in the democratic process. Furthermore, we ask the President to support a law that provides a viable path to legalization for workers and families who have contributed to the US economy for years.

Letter to
President of the United States
We would like to thank you for your commitment to the protection of civil rights and for your endorsement of comprehensive reform of the US immigration system.
We urge you to:

Work with Department of Homeland Security to stop immigration raids and other enforcement actions that tear families apart and create instability, fear, and insecurity in our communities.

Work with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to lower the Citizenship Fee to $400. This measure will help to better ensure that thousands of hardworking members of our society can fully participate in the democratic process. Our experience has demonstrated that the high cost set by the previous administration represents a significant obstacle to those seeking the American dream of citizenship, particularly in a time of economic crisis.

Support a law that provides a viable path to legalization for workers and families who have contributed their “sweat equity” to the US economy for years, together with a legal framework to reasonably address border and security issues.

We strongly believe that your administration and the US Congress can work to find a long-term solution to the challenges inherent in our immigration system. We also support a United States foreign policy towards Latin America and other regions that addresses economic and national security interests, as well as fundamental human rights issues such as immigration and human trafficking.

Sincerely,
