When it comes to immigration reform, the U.S. stands at a historic crossroads. Business as usual is no longer viable as our broken immigration system is tearing families apart, draining our pocketbooks, and undermining our security.
To fix it, we need a Texas-sized solution and we call on our Senator, Ted Cruz, to get to work on a bill that provides a fair and fast pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented Americans. We need a bill that will infuse immigration enforcement with the core American values of accountability, transparency, and fiscal responsibility. We need a system where the workers who strengthen our industries can come to the U.S. with rights and dignity. We need a rational solution to securing the border that focuses our precious resources on the real threats to security while prioritizing the vital arteries of economic growth at our ports of entry.
Sen. Cruz, do what's right for our state and our nation by supporting an immigration reform that respects human rights, American values, our communities, and our families.
