What President Obama’s Efforts to Bring Equity to Immigration Issues Mean To Me

As an immigrant teacher of immigrants President Obama’s use of his discretionary authority to protect some of the most vulnerable residents of our country means I have one more example of what integrity in action looks like. I can point to this moment in current history with pride and celebrate that someone with power is standing up for America’s best intentions as codified in the documents written so long ago by the immigrants who founded this great nation. I can illustrate how words have power and that walking our talk saves lives, transforms the present, and encourages a future worthy of us all.
