Democrats - you have a path to victory on immigration. Use it.
"Nothing in life is certain except death, taxes, and @JohnCornyn getting to ‘no’ on immigration reform - especially when it counts. Indulging Sen. @JohnCornyn and honoring his timetable is a legislative death sentence." - @FrankSharry
"Americans elected a Democratic President and Democratic majorities in both chambers of Congress to do big things, to tackle challenges left unaddressed for too long, and to effect change that people experience in their daily lives." - @FrankSharry
"On immigration, this means putting millions of long-settled immigrants on pathways to citizenship. This remains an overwhelmingly popular immigration policy." - @FrankSharry
"So use your majority, Democrats. Bypass the bad faith Republicans. They will continue to play politics to score points with the Trumpy base. You will be judged by the results you produce. Pass legislation. This is the year. Use every ounce of your power." - @FrankSharry

Why President Biden should lean in on immigration
"For Democrats, the immigration debate is not about numbers anchored in fears. It’s about solutions anchored in values. Step back and you’ll get run over. But lean in and you’ll win." - @FrankSharry
"The multiracial majority that elected Joe Biden strongly supports his vision for an orderly and humane approach that modernizes a broken system. They strongly oppose Republican support for re-upping Trump’s cruelty and chaos." - @FrankSharry
