President Obama promised to address comprehensive immigration reform during his first year in office. But two years on, Congress is at a standstill, paralyzed by partisan politics.

And under the Obama administration, deportations have reached a record high, surpassing the records set by the Bush administration: nearly 400,000 deportations in 2009, with that record already surpassed this year. Most of these deportations are of hard-working immigrants and family members, not of those who pose a threat to public safety. We are talking 1,100 people a day.

A few years back, people who think immigrants are the problem sent bricks to Congress urging them to build a wall along the southern border.

Hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of migrant deaths in the desert later, our immigration system is still a mess.

Let’s take a more productive approach: send pens to the White House so the President can use them to sign executive orders that lead the way to a smarter, fairer immigration system.

Yes, we will continue to work with allies in Congress to advance comprehensive immigration reform and partial fixes such as DREAM Act (for young people who came without status as children) and AgJobs (for farm workers). But the President could provide some real solutions to our immigration crisis by signing Executive Orders simply, with the stroke of a pen.
