CWA Commends White House Plan for Path to Citizenship for 11 Million Immigrants

The Communications Workers of America commends the Obama administration on its determination to create a path to citizenship for 11 million adults and their children who contribute to the economic life of our nation every day.

The President has laid out a framework of broad reform and has made a clear and fair path to citizenship a leading priority. Today's announcement by the President moves the debate forward and we look forward to working with the Obama administration and members ofCongress. Unfortunately the Senate majority's failure to substantially democratize the Senate rules last week will make it substantially harder toplace legislation on the floor for discussion and debate that provides a clear, simple and quick path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants and their children.

We realize, as do all involved, that this is a complex issue and we will be focused on the details of the plan going forward. We must have an overall immigration process that works for working families. That's why CWA will monitor any proposed changes to visa programs like the H-1B visa, which are sought after by business buthave cost U.S. technicians and other workers tens of thousands of jobs.
