You Can’t Always Get What You Want

“None of the committee members got everything they wanted, and neither did I, but in the end, we all owe it to the American people to get the best possible result over the finish line,” said Presidente Barack Obama in a statement released from the White House after receiving news that the Judicial Committe of the U.S. Senate had approved a new bill  that could bring strong changes to America’s policies on immigration  (March 21). The next step is to submit the bill to a vote of the entire Senate, possibly in June.

This first filtering oof the immigration reform bill does not leave either Democrats or Republicans 100% satisfied, nor does it completely satisfy American citizens nor undocumented immigrants nor possibly does it satisfy you.  But we instead of complaining, we should give thanks to God.  Now we can glimpse on the horizon a ray of hope that millions of undocumented immigrants will be able to look for legal employment, reunify their families, and even apply for future residency status.

We can’t always get everything we want, not even the president of the United States of America.  But as the Rolling Stones are wont to sing, “if you try sometime you just might find you can get what you need.”  In this case, we should rejoice at the results we’ve obtained so far.
