This is a critical moment to urge Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Latinos, like all Americans, are concerned about our nation’s struggling economy. Comprehensive immigration reform would provide a real solution to the crippling recession that has led to record-level unemployment and increasing foreclosures.
