America’s foundation is built on immigrants. Our strength, success and security depend on immigrants who continue to build our great nation. Any good, honest immigration reform must reflect the values of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers, who come to America for a better life.
In America, we do not hold the child responsible for the crimes of their parents. We must support a clean Dream Act which ensures that ‘Dreamers’ who were brought to the United States as children and have made this country their home are provided an immediate path to citizenship. We must encourage and facilitate family reunification and invest in those who believe in the American Dream and want to contribute to our country.
