wouldn’t be able to come here today
stories of coming to America over the centuries are tales of hardship, for many
Americans, our ancestors’ immigration stories would not be possible at all
under today’s immigration laws.
I stand with
millions of Americans who want to see fair and just immigration reform enacted
in 2013: a reasonable path to citizenship, with worker protections, for those
living and working in the shadows, and an equitable, inclusive system for
future immigrants, for those who are yearning to breathe free.
