With President Obama's big speech today, and with the announcement of a bipartisan framework in the Senate, it's clear that comprehensive immigration reform is finally within reach.

please join with Daily Kos and Workers’ Voice in supporting President Obama’s push for immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship for millions of hardworking people and their children. Click here to sign the petition.

With President Obama’s speech today in Nevada, and with the announcement of bipartisan framework in the Senate, it’s clear that comprehensive immigration reform is finally within reach.

While all of the details have to be fleshed out, and while passage of a good bill is still far from certain, we must pile on grassroots support for the most important, bottom-line requirement in the upcoming legislation. This means demanding that the new policy be rooted in the principles of the American Dream by offering a clear roadmap to citizenship for the millions of hard-working, undocumented immigrants and children who are already living in America.

Please join with Daily Kos and Workers’ Voice by signing our petition supporting President Obama’s call for comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship. We will send the signatures to the White House.

Keep fighting,
Rachel Colyer
Associate Campaign Direcotr, Daily Kos

Citizenship, because everyone in the world has to be just like us...or else we unleash drones to terrorize their villages and blow up their children. Citizenship, because you are either in the empire or against it. Citizenship because it's better to part of the sinking ship than a part of the iceberg? If Americans are too fat or too lazy to do basic jobs that keep fruit and vegetable affordable, then perhaps they should simply get used to paying more for such items or doing without. No one should have to work for slave wages only to be treated like dirt by the people too ignorant to know how to pick the fruit in the first place. The people who put food on all of our plates deserve a hell of a lot more than the tin merit badge of citizenship.

If you were speaking in an auditorium Brian, I'd be shouting "Bravo." You cannot currently send a star to Brian because you have done so within the last week.

They've always had a path to citizenship, they just choose to cheat instead.

Information is hard to come by for the illiterate anywhere and of other countries nearly impossible in rural towns and villages--one has to know what is a path to citizenship before one can follow it.

And you are an idiot, I guess that makes us even. I understand why they come here, I even admire their determination for a better life, but they are frauds and cheats nonetheless, and are no more deserving of citizenship than anyone else in the world. They sneak in to the US, we give them amnesty, then we give them all amnesty again, and now it's citizenship, and another 20 years down the line there will be another 11 million wanting citizenship. Where do you think we should draw the line? It hasn't worked yet. What will Obama do to absolutely guarantee that we won't be doing the same thing yet again in a few years? I don't think he has the political guts to put an end to illegals. Send them all packing and let them stand in line like everyone else has to. It's the only fair way.

Yes, JL, but if people from the depths of Africa can figure it out, then so should everyone be able to.

False assumption to presume embassy arrangements made in Africa apply with equal ease elsewhere in the world.

Hey, got this petition from DailyKos in my e-mail today and signed immediately.
Then wondered if it'd been posted on C2.
Thank you, JLA! Btw, are you a man or a woman, animal, vegetable or mineral? (only kidding)
