Reader Input: Carve a timely path to citizenship

-A +A

Concerning the March 6 Journal article, “Faith groups speak up for immigration reform,” I attended this meeting of more than 900 concerned people in Sacramento. Many were from Placer County.
I was disappointed that my congressional representative, Tom McClintock, did not send a representative from his office, and with his written statement that the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently in the U.S. should “... seek citizenship through the current process of legal immigration.”
There is currently no such practical process for citizenship that applies to most of the undocumented.
This is precisely why humane and just new legislation is needed to give these hard-working residents of our country a right to live, work and study legally and openly in the U.S. and to have a timely path to citizenship.
