LULAC Applauds President Obama's Call For Bipartisan Comprehensive Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In last night's State of the Union Address, LULAC was encouraged to see that the President's call for comprehensive immigration reform received support from both Republicans and Democrats.  The President laid out a blueprint for immigration reform that included stronger enforcement, a pathway to citizenship, and a streamlined immigration process. LULAC's civic engagement efforts have included working with business, labor, and faith communities to pass comprehensive immigration reform in order to fix our broken immigration system.  In addition, LULAC commends the President for creating the "Voting Rights Commission," a nonpartisan group that will offer recommendations to remove existing obstacles to electoral participation.  LULAC was part of a group of national civil rights organizations that put forth the recommendation for establishing such commission.

"As the President said last night, the time for immigration reform is now, and LULAC will be at the table to ensure that the legislation meets the needs of our community," said LULAC National President Margaret Moran. "At present there are bipartisan groups in both the House of Representatives and the Senate working on legislation and it is our hope that there will be significant movement on this issue in the coming months."

As part of the 16 th Annual Legislative Conference which takes place during LULAC Week, our members gather in our nation's capital to meet with Members of Congress and agency leaders to discuss the issues of critical impact to our community. In the last couple of months, LULAC has collected over 10,000 petitions from its membership urging congressional support for critical immigration reform and will be meeting with Members of Congress tomorrow advocating for passage of critical legislation that will have significant affect on our communities.

LULAC united the voices of business, labor, and faith in a blog carnival available at the LULAC blog, www.LULAC.org/blog. The carnival will be live at today's gala.

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is the nation's largest and oldest civil rights volunteer-based organization that empowers Hispanic Americans and builds strong Latino communities. Headquartered in Washington, DC, with 900 councils around the United States and Puerto Rico, LULAC's programs, services and advocacy address the most important issues for Latinos, meeting critical needs of today and the future.
