The immigration reform should pass because why not? Without the reform many families are being separated and broke apart. Why? Why should kids suffer because their parents got taken away? Why cant we just all pass this law and focus on some other things instead? We should keep our families together and stop separating families. They do the jobs that "us" Americans don't . Aren't we all illegal anyways? Aren't native Americans the only legal here ? Come one just pass the law now and stop making people suffer .
The reasons on why it should be passed are obvious! I honestly thing that the only reason this isn't happening is because of close minded, and selfish people (Some republicans). Not trying to bash here, but they are a big part on why this isn't passed yet. We need to keep moving forward! Immigration is our future, it has always been!
Saying that immigrants cant come to the us is crazy. This country is based on freedom and culture and saying that its irresponsible is crazy. This is a place people dream about, where they want to grow up and grow there kids up here. People come here for a better life, is being controlled really much better? America is the land of the free, lets keep it that way.
There are many people who come here from other countries for a better life. They come here to work and make a better life for their family. They take jobs others wouldn't and don't even get paid well. Some have been for so many years and their kids were born here if they were to get deported what would be of their kids they would just ruin things
Most immigrants find leaving their countries for one with a different culture, language and often climate extremely painful. Those who emigrate do so for a better life. They come here ready to work diligently to accomplish that goal. They take jobs most others will not, and work with fervor, happy for the opportunity. We need citizens like this.
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.
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.
