Whoever is against the Comprehensive Immigration Reform (#CIR), will be considered an enemy of the Latino Family. We will list names and last names and keep them in mind on our way to the election ballots. This isn’t a threat, it’s a promise that we will will keep. At a time where our economy needs more jobs and more qualified candidates, we must show our urge for prosperity. Our voices can’t go unheard. It is now a time for change. This bill should not be overlooked or blocked like the gun control bill. We saw that political games are stronger than the American people’s choices. We must give our politicians no other chance but pay attention to the Immigration Reform bill. Don’t stay passive watching. We need you and your familia in the fight. EVERYONE must join since EVERYONE in the Latino community will benefit directly or indirectly.
