“Despite popular support across the political spectrum and widespread bipartisan agreement, progress on immigration reform legislation has stalled yet again. What began as a policy fight for comprehensive immigration reform legislation over a decade ago has become a proxy dispute between two familiar social movements: on one side, a movement for progress, equality, and inclusion; and on the other, one that favors regression, exclusion, and intolerance. Unfortunately, the power, breadth, and beauty of our side has not yet been fully reflected or represented in policy discussions, particularly in Washington DC. In order to pass legislation, advance administrative reforms, win legal victories, or make concrete policy changes that alleviate suffering and reflect our shared values, it is clear our collective work must evolve. And it must do so quickly.”
