Immigration is necessary not only for the families that are effected be deportation or fear or deportation, but also for the business community. Immigration reform is needed in order to legitimize this portion of our society as well as provide pathways to citizenship so that they can be active members in society.
Hispanics are important to the economy. If immigration reform isn't passed. Many jobs will continue to be lost, the economy would go down to the level of the Great Depression. Also people that are racist would increase. Hispanics are the main cause that Americans even have a roof over their head. We are the main body of the workforce that is in charge of actually building houses
I do not believe how long politicians have made this issue a game for casting votes without actually taking any action on it. We are talking about people who contribute to our communities. Yes, they broke the law and who doesn't? We are not talking about psychopaths or killers. And if they want to come clean and be part of our society obeying all the rules why should we stop them. I wish more Americans would defend their dreams as immigrants do instead of blaming everything on the govt and expecting the govt to solve all their problems while they're sitting on the couch watching reality shows and waiting for that unemployment check.
America's immigration laws need reforming. It is important to our future well-being as a progressive country that we get new legislation passed. It is impossible to insure that our borders are completely secure; we have been trying to secure them for years with mixed results. Therefore, the most timely and best action we can take is to reform and strengthen immigration laws.
Yes the United States should pass immigration reform in order to address the problems with the current law and immigration policy. We must acknowledge the fact that there are hundreds of thousands of minor children who are US citizens by birth but their parents are undocumented. We need a policy that provides for a path to citizenship that doesn't destroy these families.
We also need to address the issue of undocumented children who were brought to the US at a young age and have lived all their life here but have no path to citizenship.
There are many people that come to this country just to have a better life and education . Killers should be kicked out and people that work hard should stay because they don't cause any problems. Plus an American wont do a job that a Latin can do. They will never beat a Latin one. They can't work on the fields like a Latin person. All we want is a better life.
With the state of immigration today, an immigration reform must be present in order to better regulate the control of illegal immigrants as well as illegal substances being transported across the border. There needs to be a change in how the country handles immigration due to the large amount of manpower it takes to maintain the border.
Does the reform consider granting Citizenship to the non-immigrant parents of those Children who are US Citizens? And whose parents worked legally, paid all the taxes, never broke the law and are in the country legally for more than 8 years. It is a slap in the face of those people who followed the immigration law, stayed legal and had children but are taken away of rights vs. those illegals awarded Citizenship. The number is even less than 1/4 to that of illegals, does the Government think first about law abiding people v/s those who breaks the law? Unbelievable.
Passing an immigration reform while the border is not secure is an irresponsible act. As long as illegal aliens and drugs are smuggled across our porous border, no immigration reform should pass. A porous border not only means criminals and drugs coming across, but diseases like tuberculosis and illegal weapons.
