Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has already put forth a comprehensive immigration reform bill in the House, which stresses the urgent need to repair our broken immigration system.
Now Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is working on an immigration bill for the Senate. Let's thank Senator Schumer for his commitment to comprehensive immigration reform and let him know that we support his efforts to move the bill now -- to help our economy and because it's the right thing to do.
In particular, I believe immigration reform must include a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, must support family reunification, institute smart and humane enforcement policies, and promote professional and effective border enforcement.
I urge you to introduce an immigration reform bill immediately because it’s the right thing to do, and because it will help the U.S. economy, benefiting immigrants and native-born alike.
