Immigration reform: If not now, when?
Bookmark and Share   
This week, the Reform Immigration FOR América Campaign announced a massive mobilization effort that will bring tens of thousands of people to Washington, D.C. for a dramatic demonstration of support for fixing our broken immigration system. The March For América, (www.WeMarchForAmerica.org) will unite leaders and organizations representing labor, people of faith, and communities from across the country to demand that Congress address our nation's most pressing issues.


The American people are demanding that Congress come together and deliver. Americans want an immigration system that works. The time is right for both parties to work together to create a bipartisan bill to address our broken and outdated immigration system. Thousands of working families will be coming to DC to show that the American people want a practical solution that is fair to everyone, is key to our economic recovery, and lives up to our best traditions as a nation of immigrants.


Robust recovery of our economy cannot take place on top of a broken immigration system. Simply put: Fixing the broken immigration system is a fundamental link to fixing our economy. Comprehensive immigration reform would put the economy on a more stable footing, provide a vital boost for recovery, and increase wages for all. The fact is that Congress must act immediately address our weak economy, create jobs, and get our country moving again. Immigration reform is part and parcel of that strategy. A multitude will gather in the nation's capital on March 21st to demand leadership from Congress. We want them to put aside partisanship and Washington game-playing and deliver on their promise to fix our broken immigration system. If not now, when? Congress must act to solve our toughest problems.





Ali Noorani, serves as Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum and Chairman of the Campaign.
