A majority of Americans are convinced that immigration reform done the right way will help our country. In June, a bipartisan group of senators worked together, came up with a common-sense solution and passed a bill that is not perfect but is a step towards real immigration reform. So we are nearly there, right?
But where is our representative? Speaker John Boehner has said the House will not take up the Senate bill but has not offered a reasonable alternative. Our member of Congress needs to listen to his constituents and tell House leadership to get on board with the majority of Americans.
We cannot let immigration reform stagnate. Now is the time for real reform on a bipartisan basis. I call on my representative to tell House leadership that they need to either lead with their own bipartisan bill, follow the Senate's actions, or get out of the way and let the bipartisan majority of the House move us toward the economic boost that comprehensive immigration reform will provide.
