Dear Members of Florida Voices for Immigration Reform:
As we welcome the executive action taken by the President last week, we continue to believe that the answer to our broken immigration system lies in Congressional action.
As a coalition that seeks to act as a bridge between both parties, we urge the new Congress to move in a bi-partisan fashion in 2015 and give our nation sensible immigration reform. Executive action should not preclude Congressional action.
We hope that in the spirit of Thanksgiving when we remember the first Thanksgiving, when native Americans and Pilgrims sat down together, that our nation will rekindle the spirit of tolerance and welcoming in our national soul in 2015.
