President Obama is addressing the nation tonight about the actions he’s taking to help fix our broken immigration system.
That’s exactly what he said he would do — to take action within his authority as president where Congress has refused to act.
It’s been more than 500 days since the Senate passed a comprehensive, bipartisan reform bill, and the House has shown no signs of movement. Every day we fail to act, it’s taking a toll on our country and our economy. Millions of families who want to play by the rules have no choice but to live in the shadows.
That’s why, tonight, President Obama will discuss the things he can do as president while we wait for Congress to move forward on a comprehensive, bipartisan solution.

And, if you agree that this is a time for action to fix our broken system, you should add your name right now:
