    proposed changes a path to citizenship for immigrants in the United States illegally according to new polling released Monday Support for the citizenship route has held steady at 63 throughout 2013 rising slightly among Republicans and dipping among political independents according to the report from the Public Religion Research Institute Brookings Religion Values and Immigration Reform Survey Earlier this year the Senate approved a bill including a 13 year path to citizenship for immigrants who pay back taxes and fines and learn English But House Republicans have refused to consider the bill The Republicans remain deeply divided on whether immigrants in the United States illegally should be able to gain citizenship at all The poll showed there is little support for the alternatives Deportation was backed by 18 while 14 supported legal status without citizenship PHOTOS The debate over immigration reform Throughout 2013 views on immigration reform have remained remarkably steady the authors wrote Among political groups positions have shifted slightly Support for citizenship among self identified Republicans has risen from 53 in March to 60 in November among independents it has fallen from 64 to 57 Support among Democrats has remained steady above 70 Majorities of Catholics mainline Protestants and white evangelical Protestants as well as the religiously unaffiliated support citizenship the report said Most Americans said the 13 year path was too long and they were divided over the Senate s proposed border surge a 46 billion military style buildup along the Mexican border Americans were also split on whether the issue should be an immediate priority or addressed over the next couple of years House Speaker John A Boehner R Ohio said last week that the immigration issue was absolutely not dead but he declined to say if the House would address it in 2014 MORE News

  • Why We Fast: A Call for Immigration Reform & Citizenship - Ya Es Hora - ¡Ciudadanía!
    communities This action A Fast for Families A Call for Immigration Reform and Citizenship will put the fate of aspiring Americans like Lucy s brother Gerardo at the center of our prayer as we seek to awaken the consciences of Members of Congress A devout Mormon who had completed two years of missionary work Gerardo was detained while traveling on a train to Utah His story is hardly unique Every day more than 1 100 new Americans including husbands and wives parents and children are forcibly removed from the country We will fast to change the hearts of lawmakers who refuse to hear the cries of these families Fasting is a sacred undertaking inspired by the prophets that brings us closer to God and demonstrates the moral resolve of our movement The ultimate example of this is in Jesus Christ as well as iconic leaders from recent history such as Mahatma Gandhi the Rev Martin Luther King Jr and Cesar Chavez deprived themselves of nourishment to show solidarity with the oppressed and call society to atone for injustice We seek to follow their example We will forego any food or liquid other than water and as time goes on we will attest that this sacrifice strengthens the soul as it breaks down the body As the rumbling of our stomachs recedes and the early stages of malnutrition affect our bodies God will sustain us Will House Speaker John Boehner be able to ignore us as we suffer in front of the House over which he presides Everyone who follows the immigration debate knows what we know commonsense reform is on the cusp of becoming law Sixty eight U S senators voted for a bipartisan reform bill that includes a path to earned citizenship for aspiring citizens Similar legislation in the U S House of Representatives known as H R 15 has attracted several Republican co sponsors and many more have voiced their support behind closed doors If Speaker Boehner allows a vote immigration reform will pass He knows this is true All that stands in the way is fear which can be conquered by faith While pundits speculate about Boehner s political weakness the truth is that he has a historic opportunity to wield the Speaker s gavel as an instrument of justice We believe that our moral witness to the suffering of immigrant families will move him to do what is right for our nation The leaders of Boehner s Catholic faith insist just as we do that he and other Congressional leaders have a moral responsibility to act now Passing immigration reform is politically wise as well as morally right When President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 he reportedly remarked that his party lost the South for a generation Speaker Boehner faces just the opposite situation By allowing a bill to pass he will enable his party to survive for future generations in red states and blue states alike If Republicans fail to act

  • Immigration overhaul dead in the House? - Ya Es Hora - ¡Ciudadanía!
    still looking for ways to pass some kind of immigration overhaul He said they feel a political need to do so to win over the ever growing Hispanic electorate I have no question in my mind that Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor R Va still believe the storyline that politically you have to do something and you have to pass some kind of amnesty Beck said That s why you can t declare this thing dead The Senate got things started this year when it passed a sweeping immigration bill in June that would allow the nation s 12 million undocumented immigrants to apply for citizenship bolster the border and revamp the legal immigration system to bring in more high tech and low skilled workers Boehner said this week that he has no intention of ever going to conference on the Senate bill meaning he would not allow his chamber to negotiate with the Senate over their proposal Instead Boehner and Republican leaders are pushing a piecemeal approach House committees have approved five smaller immigration bills three that enhance immigration enforcement and two that would increase the number of visas for foreign workers and Boehner wants to continue that process Republicans also continue crafting bills that would address the fate of the nation s undocumented immigrants While many have been disheartened because of the slow pace on immigration in the House supporters have turned up the pressure this week in a variety of ways to get the House GOP moving Five people started a hunger strike Tuesday inside a tent on the National Mall vowing to continue until Congress passes an immigration overhaul They are fasting across from the Capitol and are being visited by members of Congress clergy and other supporters A group of immigrant children marched on

  • Immigration reform outlook - Ya Es Hora - ¡Ciudadanía!
    for Speaker John Boehner those familiar with his thinking tell Right Turn that he still supports taking up discrete immigration issues border security internal enforcement visas undocumented etc for debate and passage This has been his position for some time Whether the Senate will be willing to break up its bill into separate legislative chunks passed in succession is an open question but Boehner is not going to engage on one massive bill As for the prospects of those separate bills getting through this year House leadership is realistic that months have now been chewed up on the shutdown and Obamacare Boehner and other Republicans nevertheless maintain that whether taken up in December or after the first of the year something will come out of the House Politico quoted Boehner yesterday as saying I ve made it clear since the day after the election that it s time to get this done His spokesman clarified according to the report that he was referring to his taking up reform with a collection of bills not a sweeping comprehensive bill like the Senate passed in June From my vantage point there really isn t time in the next month and a half to get immigration done But immigration reform opponents are mistaken if they think the issue is dead as of December 31 Immigration reform is still doable albeit not in as sweeping a fashion as the Senate bill attempted In fact I would argue that with the president on the ropes and anxious for something other than scandal defeat and chaos he and the Democrats might be willing to deal in ways they weren t earlier this year A pro immigration reform GOP senator with whom I spoke a couple of weeks ago said he was more optimistic lately that Sen

  • Schumer: Immigration reform still possible this year - Ya Es Hora - ¡Ciudadanía!
    not I think we have a real good chance to do it in the first half of next year If I had to bet money we re going to have an immigration reform bill on the president s desk Mr Schumer was part of a bipartisan group that wrote a bill the Senate passed earlier this year to provide a pathway to citizenship for millions of people currently living in the country illegally House Speaker John A Boehner Ohio Republican firmly rejected the Senate s approach Wednesday which called for quick legal status for most illegal immigrants though it withheld a full pathway to citizenship until after the Homeland Security Department invested in more Border Patrol agents doubled the length of pedestrian fencing along the U S Mexico border and purchased more equipment and technology The Senate bill also would revamp the legal immigration system to let in more foreigners based on job skills or deep family ties Mr Schumer said in a statement Wednesday that he thought the Republican dominated House would come to its senses and realize that we have to fix our immigration system in a bipartisan way They have to do something and the Republican leadership in the House knows that Speaker Boehner knows that Mr Schumer said Thursday At the same time they can t do it without Democrats Top House Republicans have rejected the Senate s broad approach and said they would write a series of bills dealing with immigration in piecemeal fashion House committees have cleared bills dealing with border security interior enforcement and guest worker programs and leaders were working on a bill that would have legalized young illegal immigrants It would be nice if we could get something done this year I wouldn t rule it out but I think all
