Dear Kathy ,

AFT President Randi Weingarten's most recent New York Times column, "A Great Opportunity for the Land of Opportunity" calls for the swift passage of commonsense, compassionate, comprehensive immigration reform.
"[President Obama's] powerful call for Congress to 'get this done' brought members on both sides of the aisle to their feet and made it clear that, after decades of congressional inaction and presidential timidity, comprehensive immigration reform finally has a solid chance to pass.
"Whether it's the realization that a nation made great by immigrants has a moral imperative to live up to our American values of democracy and opportunity, or because it's sound economic policy, or because it's just the right thing to do for hardworking families, reforming our immigration system makes sense."
There are countless reasons that our elected officials should act to reform our current system. Read more in President Weingarten's New York Times piece and pledge to stand with us in support of commonsense immigration reform that will only strengthen America.

In unity,
Kris Havens
AFT Communications Director
