There is consensus on the need for Congress to act in order to modernize immigration statutes and bring them in line with national values. But there is also a growing consensus that the President’s “enforcement first” approach is harming prospects for legislation.
It is time for the President to play to win on immigration reform instead of merely playing to win elections. He has the legal authority and moral obligation to act. Rather than continue to cave to the disingenuous and odious demands of nativist House Republicans, the President must lead with action.”
