GALEO Urges for a a True Solution on Immigration Rather Than a Symbolic Vote
#PassABill that provides a solution, not a symbolic gesture
December 4, 2014 [Atlanta, GA]- After 524 days of failing to take up any attempt at meaningful immigration reform in the House, Republicans have announced that in response to President Obama’s executive action on immigration, they’ll be voting today to undo the action. While the vote is largely symbolic as it would not pass in the U.S. Senate, it’s a gesture that Republicans see as a way to express their anger at the President for taking steps within his authority to fix the immigration system on his own.
