I am deeply disappointed in today’s Supreme Court ruling in United States v. Texas. As a nation, we must not accept a status quo in which families continue to be ripped apart. We must not accept a status quo in which hard-working immigrants are demonized. And we must not accept a status quo in which millions of our friends and neighbors are living in the shadows.
While today's ruling is a setback, it's not a defeat. Now, more than ever, Congress needs to put divisive political games aside to pass comprehensive immigration reform and finally allow relief and dignity for millions of American families.
