America’s identity and history as a nation of immigrants is at the core of the American story and American values. Our broken immigration system dishonors those values of inclusiveness, justice and equality. America gives people hope, a democratic voice, the opportunity to make a new life for their families, and a chance to build a real future through hard work, determination and entrepreneurial spirits.
Unfortunately, our nation’s traditions are under siege from a small but vocal group of fear-mongers. Fixing our broken immigration will require reliance on the tried and true American values that have made us the most successful experiment in building a nation of immigrants in world history. The bottom line is that our values as a nation demand that reform must fulfill the dream of one nation by creating a path to citizenship, honoring families, protecting American workers and preserving the American system of justice.
