The Immigration System

The immigration system is broken and is hurting families and the economy. The rule of law is diminished in the present set-up. We need Comprehensive Immigration Reform, and we are advocates for reforming the system and helping those caught up in it.

Here’s the short version of what Comprehensive Immigration Reform means:

1. Border protection consistent with humanitarian values

2. Reforms in family-based immigration to reduce backlog

3. Creation of legal avenues for workers and their families

4. Earned legalization of undocumented immigrants
