President Obama, Keep Your Promises!

When President Obama took office, he promised to enact immigration reform within a year.  Four years later, deportations have reached the unprecedented level of 400,000 people a year.  Now that Obama has won his second term with the help and support of the Latino community, he again makes the same promise—immigration reform within a year.  Please contact the president to encourage him to make good on his commitment this time.
