Millions of immigrants in our country want citizenship. But under our broken immigration laws, they have no way to earn it. I personally know some of these hard-working immigrants, and I think it’s hurting our country to keep them living in the shadows.
That's why I'm calling on my senators to protect the path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States and vote in favor of reform this year.
Some extremists are still suggesting self-deportation. We all know that's not realistic. We need real solutions, and rounding up 11 million people or asking them to leave is inhumane and fixes nothing.
That's why I hope my senators will do the right thing and vote for the Senate's immigration bill.
