Putting People Before Politics

Today, all those who have spent years trying to fix our broken immigration system should feel gratitude toward President Obama. In a primetime address to the nation Thursday night, the president announced he was taking executive action to relieve some of the suffering caused by the failures of the status quo. Millions of families will no longer live under the daily threat of having their lives torn apart by senseless deportations, which is something all people should celebrate. But unfortunately, the president's compassionate actions are creating a political firestorm among some Republicans in Washington. Their anger and antipathy toward the White House are blinding them to the positive effects these measures will have for our society.
