Todd Schulte, Acting President of FWD.us, released the following statement after President Obama announced executive action on immigration reform:
"We applaud President Obama for announcing important steps that mean millions of families can live their lives free from the fear of deportation and contribute more fully to our communities. Moreover, we're encouraged by the White House's pledge to continue working to make it easier for entrepreneurs to create American jobs, and help keep the best and the brightest who come from around the world to study at our universities."
"To be clear, these actions are no substitute for legislation. FWD.us is proud to be a part of this step forward, but we have lots of work to do. We will continue every day to fight alongside our champions from across the country and on both sides of the aisle to find the permanent legislative solution that will finally fix our broken immigration system. Tonight is a critical step forward. We have lots of work to do."
