AILA Doc. No. 13012950 | Dated January 29, 2013
Washington, DC - Today, President Obama called for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform, saying unequivocally that now is the time for action. He noted that most Americans agree that it is time to "fix the system that has been broken for way too long" and that immigration reform will strengthen our economy and our nation's future.
AILA applauds the President's commitment to key principles at the heart of meaningful immigration reform, starting with an earned path to legal status that eventually could be converted to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented in our communities, and including:
"I was moved by the passion in the president's speech today. He reminded us that most of "us" were once "them." We are a nation of immigrants, that is our strength and our legacy," said Laura Lichter, President of AILA.
She continued, "The President called on Congress to move forward on immigration reform legislation and said that if Congress doesn't act, he'll move forward on his own bill for them to act on right away. AILA and its 12,000 members are ready to offer legal expertise, gained through working each and every day with immigrants from every country and every background as they seek to become Americans."
