Here we go again. As with health care and now with immigration reform, a Republican majority Congress cannot or will not address this pressing need, so our president must act. And, as with health care, so now with immigration reform, congressional Republicans continue to refuse to tackle this issue.
Instead of doing their jobs and actually drafting legislation to address immigration reform (or health care or anything for that matter), congressional Republicans prefer to threaten to shut down the Department of Homeland Security, putting America's safety at risk and jeopardizing the morale and financial security of hundreds of thousands of employees and their families who go unpaid during any shutdown.
The one-week reprieve from shutdown is not enough. Stop questioning the president's birthplace or his religion or his love of country. Stop supporting lawsuits against the administration. Stop partisan attacks upon the president's cabinet members and nominees.
Stop all that nonsense and start doing your jobs.
