In 1962, when President Kennedy had still not delivered on his campaign promise to end housing discrimination “with the stroke of a pen,” civil rights leaders organized the “Ink for Jack” campaign and flooded the White House with pens, leading the President to sign the anti-discrimination policy.

Today, when so many critical issues remain caught in Washington gridlock, administrative action by the President can begin to address at least some aspects of our nation’s immigration crisis. The President has spoken out against the Arizona law (and filed suit against it); he has spoken of his commitment to immigration reform. But he needs to do more, because while Washington dithers, millions suffer: families are separated, human and financial resources are squandered, the economy stagnates, and we’re no closer to fixing our broken immigration system.
