Reform Immigration For America to Begin Sustained Campaign of Civil Disobedience
Enough Is Enough; President and Congress Must Lead
Yet where is the political courage from the President and the Republican Party? The President has repeatedly promised the American people a comprehensive fix to our broken immigration system and an end to the worst excesses of the Bush administration's enforcement-only approach. Despite his wonderful speeches and promises, he has dramatically failed to deliver. Instead we're faced with the intolerable status quo. For now the Obama administration is more intent on being tough on children, on mothers and on exploited workers.
We stand with our partners because we cannot accept the current state of affairs. We support this campaign of non-violent civil disobedience. We are joining the call for action on May 29th.
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN: The Reform Immigration FOR America campaign is a coalition of more than 600 faith, labor, business, progressive, and immigration reform groups that have joined together to get comprehensive immigration reform passed.
