President Obama & Immigration
I have received this letter from The White House – Presidential Correspondence, in response to my letter that I sent. As you see it’s a generic letter that is sent and no mention to any issues I have posted to the President, they also could have; at least Said “Dear Shadi”, unless me and Mr. Obama go way back and are good Ole Buddies!!! –
Anyway, reason I sent a letter (actually two) is to see if the President actually reads 10 letters/day or this is just a PR! Also give my two cents about certain Immigration issues. Letter below:
Thank you for writing me. I have heard from many Americans concerned about immigration, and I value your input as we work to address this pressing challenge.
We are all united under the principles etched onto our Statue of Liberty: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Our Nation has always prospered from this generous and hopeful spirit. Yet, today, our immigration system is broken and a large portion of our economy depends on millions of workers living in the shadows. We are a Nation of laws and a Nation of immigrants, and we must reconcile those traditions.
For too long, politicians in Washington have exploited this issue to divide us rather than searching for practical solutions that unite us. We must put politics aside and offer a comprehensive solution that secures our borders, enforces our laws, and reaffirms our rich tradition of welcoming immigrants.
There is broad consensus around building a solution that stops the flow of undocumented workers across our borders and prevents employers from hiring undocumented workers. However, we know that enforcement is only part of the solution. We must also require undocumented immigrants who are already here to step out of the shadows and onto a responsible path to earn citizenship by demonstrating sound character, a commitment to America, and a strong work ethic.
