Immigration reform 2015 new: Is there any solution in sight?
There is no hope for undocumented immigrants in the US at the moment. President Obamaâ€™s all out efforts in this regard have been torpedoed by Republicans who went to court and blocked his executive order.
Despite all his efforts President Obama has failed to provide succor to around 12 million undocumented immigrants across the US. There is no denying the fact that he hasnâ€™t been able to accomplish much.
No one can say that he was not serious in tackling the issue and to provide long term relief to them. But whatever he did was opposed tooth and nail by Republicans who didnâ€™t allow him to succeed on the issue. Despite some short term measures, all long-term efforts seem to have bore no fruits at all.
Nonetheless immigration activists are not giving up as yet and they are trying their best to provide as much support to them as is possible under current circumstances. While they canâ€™t do much for the undocumented immigrants now, latest reports suggest that an important immigrant rights organization is all set to come out with a plan to help millions of eligible lawful permanent residents become naturalized citizens throughout the month of September.
The organization is working real hard to accomplish this goal. Citizenship Month and Citizenship Day, which falls on Sept. 17, the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund plans to actually come out with many events across the country, which will aim to provide assistance to the millions of legal permanent residents (LPRs) who are currently eligible to become U.S. citizens.
While talking about their plan on the occasion Arturo Vargas, NALEO Educational Fund executive director says, â€œWe need to break down the barriers that are keeping millions of hard-working and talented legal permanent residents from contributing fully to our nation’s economy and societyâ€.
While detailing their plans further he went on to add, â€œThroughout the month of September, we will do our part to help as many potential new Americans as possible successfully navigate and complete the naturalization processâ€.
