After decades of inaction from Congress, President Obama recently used his executive authority to announce actions that prioritize the deportation of high-risk undocumented immigrants and defer deportations of parents of children who lawfully reside in the U.S.
Those actions are a valid and restrained exercise of executive power. But Congress is the only branch of government with the power to enact permanent, comprehensive immigration reform
Now, all eyes are on incoming GOP leaders in Congress. They’ll be under pressure from their right flank to push back with every trick in the book -- from shutting down the government to impeachment. That’s no way to govern.
That’s why we’re speaking out. If you’re with us, let us know and become a citizen co-signer of our statement today.
