Make your mark on immigration reform now

Posted by: Gordon on 11/7/2014

Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it's not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way.

The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won't. It's whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.

Who said that? You did, Mr. President. We hope those words still have power to inspire you, because we have arrived at perhaps the most important make-your-mark moment on immigration of your administration.

The elections have come and gone. Now it's time to move forward on the dream for all that Congress could not move in 2014. We not only urge, but we demand that you move on that promise of granting relief to 11 million aspiring citizens in the time frame you promised us just a few months ago.

Our families cannot continue the torture of separation any longer. Don't delay your promise one more day.  Thousands of families and mostly children suffer every minute you delay your promise to keep our families together, they too deserve the same respect and dignity that every human being deserves. 

Make your mark for millions. We have been patient and stayed committed. The real test is whether you, Mr. President will be hardened or shamed into inaction. Act now. Take the risk!
