Realizing that nothing can pass this House of Representatives, organizers asked Obama for help, and felt betrayed after they received a no from the "Deporter in Chief."
In the days before Easter Sunday, we think of the immigrants whose dreams are being deferred. We think of the gains and losses suffered by faith communities that have fought this fight for generations.
