Conservative Group Asks For Path To Citizenship For Undocumented Immigrants
Updated: Wednesday, July 9 2014, 06:45 PM CDT
A model student at Travis High School is preparing for his future.
Cristian Vasquez, 18, will attend the University of Texas at San Antonio in the fall to study mechanical engineering.
"My goal is to help my mother out because my mom is a single mother of three and so helping her would really be important to me," says Vasquez.
But there's just one hitch: Cristian's mother brought him to the U.S. at one year old. He currently has a visa but it expires in 2016 and he doesn't qualify for deferred action.
"So as soon as that expires I can be deported," says Cristian.
Which is why Cristian is asking President Obama and Congress to pass immigration reform. And he's not alone.
"This is a human issue, it is really about people," says Pastor Tim Moore.
On Wednesday, several conservative groups came together to call for immigration reform. Their plea includes a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
"We do support a path to citizenship with a rigorous process, whatever that process is, that Congress determines," says Nelson Salinas of the Texas Association of Business.
The business leaders understand that may not be popular with their most conservative counterparts.
"If we can't find that common ground in America anymore, then my vote would be to keep the children and not deport the children," says Pastor Moore
As for Cristian, he's asking for empathy and understanding.
"I've seen a lot of good people get deported and they have wives here and kids here and or family and when they're gone, it's devastating," says Cristian.
