FACT 1: The border is more secure than ever..

www.people-press.orgCitizenship is not an extreme position. Giving undocumented immigrants permanent legal status without the possibility of citizenship, would create an entire second class of Americans; Ones who can never vote, can never run for office, and can never be full and equal members of society. That’s just not who we are as a nation.

It’s no surprise that the american people agree. A recent poll found that a full 72% of Americans support a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.
When it comes down to it, Americans recognize citizenship is good for the country.

The facts are clear, the border is safer that ever, immigrants are a net positive for the economy and the american people strongly support giving a tough but fair path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

It’s time for congress to come together, and pass a commonsense immigration reform.

There is a lot of misinformation out there about the role that immigrants play in our country.
The fact is, that immigrants are net positive for the U.S. economy, paying more to the system than they take out. Legalizing the undocumented through the immigrantion reform, would mean that these workers will earn more money, and they’ll have more money to spend on the economy. This will boost
demand for goods and services helping businesses grow.

Some say immigrants use too many public programs that will offset the economic benefits of immigration reform but let’s look at the facts; New immigrants utilize fewer programs like social security and welfare than the native born.
The simple fact is, that immigrants are makers, not takers.

mediamattersorgIn the last few years, the U.S. have made incredible progress towards securing the US-Mexico border.
We now have more boots on the ground and more resources and technology to view and track unauthorized entries.

Over the past 4 years, the Obama administration has dedicated unprecedented resources to secure the border, taking important step to make interior and work side enforcement of the immigration law smarter and more effective. They have made historical investment in man power, technology and  infrastructure to help secure the border.
Since the last time we debated immigration reform in 2007, the U.S. has continued to do border security.
In fact, the U.S. has now met or exceeded all of the border security standard written into the 2007 immigration reform bill.

There will always be more work to be done on border security, but the fact is that our border is now more secure than ever.

Prosperous nations such as the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom will always attract immigrants that are in search for a better life. The problem is that many immigrants do not follow the proper immigration channels. The United States has an illegal immigration problem as immigrants enter the country illegally by crossing the border between the United States and Mexico, or they enter legally but overstay their visas. The United States Immigration Reform is specifically targeting the problem of 12 to 20 million undocumented workers in the United States.

About The Immigration Reform

The Immigration Reform is primarily focusing on the number of immigrants, both legal and illegal currently in the United States. Organizations and politicians that use the term “Immigration Reform” to support a decrease in immigrants include: American Immigration Reform, NumbersUSA and Congressman Tom Tancredo. There are also several groups and politicians that support immigration to the United States, including: Senator John McCain, Congressman Chris Cannon and the National Immigration Forum.

We need to end Illegal Immigration, secure the borders and give a path to citizenship to those who are already in the country.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan group of House members working in secret on a comprehensive immigration bill is nearing completion and has met with party leaders to brief them.

A spokesman for Republican House Speaker John Boehner says Boehner had a good talk Friday with Republicans in the group, and that the lawmakers have made real progress.

The group’s three Democrats met Thursday with Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

The group had hoped to release their bill around the time of the State of the Union last month, but now an aide says they will aim for April.

They’re expected to include some way for some illegal immigrants to become citizens, but details are unclear.

Attention has focused on a negotiating group in the Senate, which is expected to act first on immigration.

The Reality of Our Safer Border Makes Immigration Reform Possible. Of course it would not make sense to pass the reform, if the border was not secure first.

Americans are ready for just immigration reform that keeps our borders secure, respects the rule of law and creates a pathway to earned legal status for our hardworking neighbors who lack documentation. This earned legal status should include temporary worker visas and citizenship.

Leaders of Congress recognize that a better immigration process is urgent. We must unite behind an immigration process that is fair, respects every human being, protects the unity of our families and preserves our standing as the world’s standard-bearer for freedom.
