Blog: Beginning Again on Immigration Reform
Jan 03, 2011
Before we left for vacation, the Senate failed to pass the DREAM act, devastating many people just before the holidays. To highlight this misery I submitted a piece to Sojourner’s blog, God’s Politics entitled A Christmas DREAM for Students Around the Country. I commented on the lack of Christmas spirit in the hearts of the Senators who voted against a piece of legislation that should have easily been passed.
Now, it’s a brand new year, a fresh start, the beginning. Congress reconvenes on Wednesday, January 5 with bright ideas and good energy. I urge our congressional members to support legislation that reforms our immigration system effectively and “reunites families, not tear them apart.”
