NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AJC has long supported comprehensive immigration reform that at once secures the nation's borders and offers a humane alternative to the limbo in which 11 million undocumented immigrants find themselves. Though various bipartisan proposals to achieve that goal have been made, none, regrettably, has made it through Congress.
At this critical juncture, we underscore, as we have in the past, the urgent moral—and practical—need to bring undocumented immigrants out of the shadows. The continuation of the status quo is an unsustainable policy, and does not comport with American values to respect and defend human dignity. No matter where one stands on administrative action, the Administration and the Congress should make it the utmost priority to work together in fashioning comprehensive bipartisan legislation that will provide for a permanent fix to our broken immigration system.
