African American Ministers in Action Praise Senate on Bipartisan Immigration Proposal

4798 People For the American Way's African American Ministers in Action today praised the bipartisan immigration framework unveiled today in the Senate, which includes a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and their children.
"For too long, inadequate and inhumane immigration laws have hurt our immigrants and held all Americans back," said Reverend Timothy F. McDonald, III, chairman of African American Ministers in Action. "Today's proposal is an important step forward as we strive for an immigration system that helps our country thrive while treating all people with humanity and respect. Our brothers and sisters who come to this country for a better life - from Latin America, Africa, the Caribbean and around the world - are as deserving of the opportunity for full citizenship as any of the millions of men, women and children who have come to this country throughout our history.  We join others in the faith and progressive communities in expressing our thankfulness to lawmakers of both parties who are keeping this basic principle in mind as they strengthen our immigration laws."
