As a first-generation immigrant, I am glad the White House is going to take executive action on immigration reform. Though I was lucky to become a U.S. citizen through legal channels, I support a comprehensive overhaul of our broken system. Providing undocumented immigrants a legal path to citizenship is crucial. Being criminalized and forced to live in the shadows is no way for hardworking immigrants to live.
