Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska captures the feelings of many who have been advocating for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Emiliano Lerda, Executive Director of JFON-NE says
(We are) encouraged by the bi-partisan immigration reform bill released … that provides a path to citizenship for millions of aspiring Americans in the U.S. who are currently without options. It is clear that the current immigration system is broken; and the Senate bill S.744, titled “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013,” is a step in the right direction.
Charles Ellison, Regional Attorney of Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska, continues by stating:
although this compromise measure does not contain all the changes we would like to see, it would produce many positive changes and we believe it is a great start to the process of overhauling a system that has long needed repair.
