President Clinton took up for President Obama, saying he is on “pretty firm legal ground” to take executive action on immigration reform, seeing as every president in the modern era has issued some kind of executive action on the issue.
With Republican extremists in Congress failing to govern, President Barack Obama has kept his promise… This move will transform the lives of people who came to America in search of a better life, who contribute to our nation’s economic success, and who have lived in fear of being torn away from their homes and families for far too long.
We applaud the President for his bold action, but we know this solution is imperfect, temporary, and limited. It doesn’t provide a pathway to citizenship and many families remain at risk of being ripped apart. Now, more than ever, Congress must pass legislation that puts 11,000,000 (11 million) aspiring Americans on the road to citizenship and ends senseless deportations without further militarization at our border.
