The power of speaking out on behalf of others and against prejudice cannot be overstated or forgotten. It's a lesson already known in our schools. Standing up for the bullied is essential to fighting hate. It must be repeated again and again.

Despite Rep. Steve King's anti-immigrant bile, plenty of potential GOP presidential candidates took part in his Iowa Freedom Summit.

Rep. Luis Gutierrez

At Last, Sensible Immigration Reform May Have a Chance in Washington

Immigration reform has stalled because of ugly Republican politics and an insistence by the Democrats that it be all or nothing. This has taken a toll on the country's economic growth and global competitiveness. But there may finally be hope to slow the skilled-immigrant exodus that is in progress.

All were willing to step up to make a difference, to lead when it could be dangerous, and to let their lives be shining examples for others. We should remember them when we face stormy and cloudy weather in our national life and become bright rainbows of hope like them.

How can I thank the man who deported my friends? The phrase "2 million" meant nothing on Thursday to the President. He failed to acknowledge that these 2 million already deported also have families. He forgot to say that 2 millions souls have already been hurt.
