Why we need Comprehensive Immigration Reform Now.

I was born in the United States and feel very blessed to be a United States citizen. My father came to the United States from Guyana on a student visa and met my mother while at the University. Growing up, I witnessed how the immigration system worked as my father sponsored his siblings to come to the United States.

Currently we have an immigration system that is broken with over an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants. If Congress fails to take any action, then that inaction is an action that continue to maintain the status quo and the same broken system.  It is important for all of us to do our part in making sure that Congress acts now when there is meaningful legislation passed by the Senate.

People who have lived in the United States  for a long time, have paid taxes and are positive contributor to the community deserve a path to citizenship.The issue evokes a lot of passion on both sides, but at the end of the day we need a rational response. We need to recognize the dignity of every human being.
