With immigration reform in the national spotlight, Equal Voice News wants to hear feedback from readers about ideas that might work, what needs more thinking - and what is missing from the public discussion.
There is much to consider: President Barack Obama on Tuesday presented his immigration ideas, a day after a group of bipartisan senators issued their thoughts. On Sunday, the Illinois governor signed a bill into law, which gives undocumented immigrants permission to receive driver’s licenses.
Last week, a new poll showed that a majority of Americans support citizenship for undocumented immigrants, the Associated Press reported.
For years, grass-roots immigration groups from throughout the United States have been working on the issue so families are not torn apart and that people can have safe, stable lives.
