THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION TO REFOCUS ON IMMIGRATION REFORM
"Clearly, this nation of immigrants needs immigration reform," said Judith Golub, AILA's Senior Director of Advocacy and Public Affairs.
And with this announcement the Administration is signaling just that: that our current immigration system is broken and needs to be fixed.
is pleased that the Administration is adding its voice to the chorus of those who recognize that our current dysfunctional system is beyond repair, and that trying to enforce such a dysfunctional system will lead only to more dysfunction.
This stance repudiates the regressive position of the opponents of immigration reform, those naysayers whose only contribution to the current debate is their continued support for failed initiatives.
welcomes the Administration's return to this issue and is eager to embrace a proposal that addresses the failures of our current system, and especially in an election year, deals seriously, appropriately, and on a bipartisan basis with this important issue," continued Golub
