Where Presidents Stood On Immigration (Videos)

Our immigration policy has always been all over the place. This is why CONGRESS NEEDS TO ACT. No longer can congress be allowed to kick this can down the road. The burden is now on congress because of it's failure to act in the past. Neither blame or anger should be directed towards Trump nor any of his predecessors. Each have been left to twist in the wind trying to come up with their own policy because of congress's failure to act. Every one of these presidents tried to pressure congress. Each have failed

Executive actions will no longer appease the American people. If there's anger to be had let it be towards those who should be held accountable-- members of congress. They are the ones charged with making laws. Not presidents, the courts or individual states. They can save DACA or make it go away. They can decide how many, who come into this country and the rules they have to play by to get here Congress has the ability to override a president's veto if they feel the need to. The time has come for this congress to act. No more excuses. No more hiding behind the various presidents to stall immigration reform.. Just do it-- do your jobs.

Folks don't let them get away without doing something yet again. Hold congress accountable. Let them know we're watching and we're sick and tired of their inaction. We don't want to go through another 50 or 60 years of allowing this nation to divide itself like we have been from one president to the next. Neither for our sake, our kids nor those who seek citizenship doing all the right things only to be told America doesn't want you. Get lost. What kind of message does this send to the rest of the world? We're too good for them?

We need to know where we've been to know where we need to go.

This isn't a conservative or liberal thing. Plenty of good people went on to become president. Certain members of congress expressed compassion and frustration from both sides. It's time we back them up and give them and future presidents the support they need by enacting commonsense laws through congressional action. A lot of people are hurting unnecessarily. Time to end this so we can move on to other things.
