Yes, we are undocumented, but this is our home, and we will not stop fighting for administrative relief from President Obama and a permanent solution from Congress that affirms the dignity of Dreamers and our families.
As Americans who find joy in our family heritages and faith traditions, we really have only one choice: Commonsense immigration reform that makes our entire nation stronger.

It's disappointing that immigration reform is delayed until at least 2014. But delay does not mean defeat. Immigration reforms have been passed in election years before, and if political ideology and political self-interest play any role, it can happen again.
After pointing out one story which was strangely ignored in the pile-on in the media this week, it seems the profits for the company contracted to build the Obamacare site are way up. How nice for them, eh? Sigh.
The media has been far, far too negative about Obama. Yes, he has problems he must deal with, but the fix is in, and the comeback will soon begin, and the House GOP wallows at 9 percent popularity while the GOP civil war has only begun.
With Mitt "Self-Deportation" Romney being soundly beaten, all eyes were on immigration reform to be the first issue tackled and resolved in 2013. Republicans, the old immigration obstacle, would finally agree after Obama won 77 percent of the Latino vote.
While pundits speculate about Boehner's political weakness, the truth is that he has a historic opportunity to wield the Speaker's gavel as an instrument of justice.

Why is there such strident opposition when the vast majority of the country is now in favor of immigration reform? When I asked a Republican senator this question, he was surprisingly honest: "Fear," he said. Fear of an American future that looks different from the present.
My fast is inspired by the immigrant workers our nation and our economy depend on -- whether they are child care workers, janitors, security guards, airport workers, fast food workers, or adjunct professors -- but who earn far too little and are barely getting by.
Of course after the primary season the House leadership will claim the legislative window leading up to the fall election will be too short to schedule a vote on immigration reform. What about during the lame duck session which follows the general election?
The fear remains. Whether we are citizens or not, whether our parents or brothers or sisters are in danger of deportation or not, whether we are all...
On the weekend of a different 9/11 -- the one in 1998 -- four migrants died trying to cross into the United States from Mexico. On Friday, the body of...
This was supposed to be Marco Rubio's big year. Back in February, the junior senator from Florida made the cover of Time magazine -- billed as "The Republican Savior."
