Path to citizenship
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Republicans and Democrats in the Senate deserve praise for passing immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship for nearly 11 million Americans without papers. The House of Representatives should be next, but a tiny handful of Republicans are standing in the way of a vote.

I think this is unacceptable to the millions of immigrants in our country who want citizenship. The path to citizenship already has the support of a majority of the House, and it's hurting our country to keep so many people living in the shadows.

I hope Congress follows the will of the American public and passes immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship for 11 million Americans without papers. It's the right thing to do.
