    both the President and from Congress... we .... we .... are allowed.... Our policy .... a lack of urgency in government.... immigration should not be framed .... lack of enthusiasm by Congress.... The concern .... our government ....conservatives in Congress .... why are we not putting our energy.... We .... we have yet to see ... politicians are too ....those in the halls of Congress
    This is not a problem of "we" or of "government" or of "congress."

    Just once in your piece is the perpetrator of the problem mentioned: conservatives.

    Immigration reform is a strongly partisan issue for which there will be little conservative or Republican support for years to come.

    You want reform, speak out against the Republicans not against the government and citizens they are hamstringing. Speak and fight for Democrats and you'll get your reforms.

    Break the pattern of low voting of Latinos in midterm elections such as the upcoming 2014, we could retake the House, and you could have immigration reform early the next year.
