Trip to Alabama

It was an honor to travel to Alabama this week to examine the effects of the state's immigration law. I had the opportunity to participate in an ad hoc hearing with Congressman Luis Gutierrez where we spoke with residents of Alabama about the regrettable effects this law has on state residents. Unfortunately, Alabama provides only another reason the Federal Government must address our broken immigration system. Only Congress has the constitutional authority to fix our broken immigration system. Congress has a moral duty to enact comprehensive immigration reform, to keep families and communities together, provide a pathway to citizenship, revise our visa allocation system, bring workers back to our farms, and integrate our immigrants as contributing members of our civil society. Action by Congress would ultimately strengthen our economy and create jobs for all Americans.
