Immigration reform

Democratic Senate leaders are urging President Obama to delay the immigration order. The President has decided to wait on making such a big decision right before the upcoming elections on Nov. 4. He believes making such a controversial ruling could potentially cause the Democratic Party to lose conservative voters this year.

The nation needs a comprehensive immigration law. Every day the lives of Hispanic families are drastically being altered in the blink of an eye.

Janet Murguia the National council of La Raza says, "For us the president has been our Deporter in Chief."

Her statement is warranted when there are thousands of families being shattered every day as a result of deportation. These families have to suddenly find new ways to support each other and reconnect while being separated for an uncertain amount of time.

Immigrant workers and their cheap labor help American business thrive. Some will argue deportation is good because immigrants are taking the jobs that American citizens need. The truth is that few Americans are lining up to work jobs that require manual labor, long work hours and low pay rates (e.g. landscaping, construction, and repair). These individuals should be allowed to own a workers permit. The government needs to make it a priority to deport the criminals and felons, instead of people who are trying to earn an honest living.
