So there we have it- a confirmation that any executive action on immigration will have to wait until after November when the mid-term elections are over. There are many news reports on it and of course, much anger has been expressed. What are we to do now?
Yes, our hopes keep getting dashed but unfortunately, we have no choice but to be patient. To all my clients and readers I suggest we remain optimistic (hard, I know) and continue to rally behind the POTUS. He needs public support and we are it.
I have to believe that there will be executive action on immigration reform, just not right now. Therefore, I suggest we make lemonade. We use these next few weeks to our advantage, continue to push ideas to the White House, continue to see your Congress representative. If mid-term elections have candidates worried, tell them how important immigration is to you.
Continue to the be the 12th Man for immigration reform!
