Representative Pelosi, in your role as House Minority Leader, you have spoken often about the urgent need to fix our broken immigration law. You have also stated that the country needs to address the fate of the 11 million immigrants and provide a path to citizenship for them through comprehensive immigration reform.
The signers of this petition, along with the combined 15 million members of MoveOn.org, America's Voice, 18 Million Rising, We Belong Together, and CREDO Action, call on you to stand strong and take the step that your well-meaning colleagues have not had the courage to.
We badly need a comprehensive immigration reform bill to fix the broken immigration system, and we are tired of waiting while leadership in the House employs stalling tactics to delay the passage of the bill.
Please take the lead in this historic moment by introducing a discharge petition to bring the Senate immigration bill to the House floor, if Speaker John Boehner refuses to do it himself.
