Obama Links Fundraising Email to Immigration Action

By    |   Friday, 21 November 2014 02:55 PM EST

Now that President Barack Obama has announced his decision for executive action on immigration, he's using it to seek contributions of up to $1,000 to his Organizing For Action initiative.

Emails went out from the site telling recipients that "now we need to fight back," reports The Washington Examiner.  "President Obama is taking action. The other side wants nothing more than to tear this progress down. Help fight back — make a donation today."

And in the email, which has a link to a donation page, Obama says that his executive action is just like actions "every president in the last 70 years" have taken to enact change on issues in which Congress has failed to act.

"There's no disagreement in Washington that our system is badly broken," the email says.

"That's why a bipartisan majority in the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform. That was more than 500 days ago, but we're still waiting for the House to hold a vote."

But every day that the action is delayed, he said, "our country and our economy suffer. Millions of families go on living in the shadows, without a chance to pay their taxes or do what's necessary to get on the right side of the law."

He urged people who agree that they can't wait longer to wait for "meaningful action" to "join Americans across the country, including supporters of OFA, who are standing up to fight for reform."

There are some "voices" involved though, who "want to make this issue about me, so I want to be clear about this: The actions I'm taking today are no substitute for comprehensive reform. Only Congress can finish the job."

However, Obama says in the email that he is "not just going to wait for that day to come," as "the American people expect solutions from the people they send to Washington."

The site is also collecting names of supporters through a plea on its immigration page.
