Disappointed in Sen. Mark Kirk

To the Editor:

If you haven’t been paying attention to the issue of immigration reform, you’re missing history in the making.

Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have taken a major step toward fixing our broken immigration system, and that’s good for all of us. They’re considering a bill that
would finally establish a roadmap to citizenship for millions of aspiring Americans.

The road it lays out isn’t easy, and some of the conditions are downright difficult. But the bill is a historic opportunity for bipartisan cooperation.

I’m disappointed that U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk hasn’t yet taken a position on this historic bill. The time is now for real immigration reform. This is a time for leadership, not sitting on the fence. Sitting on the sidelines isn’t an option.
