Obama to Meet With Schumer, Graham Amidst Calls for Concrete Action on Immigration
Continued from previous page
With millions of Irish immigrants in the U.S. – and tens of thousands undocumented – the Irish are stepping up and engaging seriously in the immigration reform debate. [...]
... Ciaran Staunton, co-founder and President of ILIR is traveling to Denver, Phoenix, and Tucson to send the message that “Immigration reform is as important to the Irish American community as it is to any other community,” according to ILIR’s press release.
The fact remains that a stunning majority of Americans prefer a comprehensive immigration overhaul to both doing nothing about our immigration crisis and to deportation-only immigration proposals, which do little to truly fix our broken system.
It's becoming increasingly clear that the time for immigration reform is indeed now.
[Update: Late Monday afternoon, the White House meeting was postponed due to flight delays that kept Sen. Graham from Washington.]
