We are relieved President Obama is preparing to take executive action to make reasonable changes to our immigration system, even if the fix is temporary and may not go far enough.
We support efforts to expand rights for young foreign nationals who entered the U.S. as children, more protections for parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, and smarter security measures. The abysmal public approval rate of Congress shows that Americans are frustrated with Congress's inability to resolve urgent issues facing the country.
Go for it, President Obama! Challenge and work with Congress to pass a better bill, but don't accept inaction.
