letter artEditor:

I support a pathway to citizenship … because it’s the right thing to do.

Our immigration laws are broken, and 11 million Americans need our help to find a solution. I personally know some of these hard-working immigrants, and I think it’s hurting our country to keep them living in the shadows.

We need Congress to protect the path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States and vote in favor of reform this year. We can’t keep denying these people rights.

I support the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” bill because it has solutions, and rounding up 11 million people or asking them to self-deport is inhumane, not to mention completely unrealistic.

That’s why Congress will do the right thing and vote for an immigration bill with a path to citizenship.
