It is self-evident that America is a nation of immigrants. Yet our immigration system is irrevocably broken, producing incalculable suffering among millions of our children, neighbors and loved ones. For more than a decade now, we’ve been working with our affiliate nonprofit organizations and immigrant advocates across the nation to push Congress to pass broad and progressive immigration reform that treats immigrant families humanely and strengthens our nation. We support effective, just and sensible immigration reform that embraces the following key tenets:
- Providing a Broad, Clear and Fair Path to Citizenship for Undocumented Immigrants
- Eliminating System Backlogs
- Preserving Family Unity
- Ensuring Due Process and Civil Rights
- Humane Enforcement of Immigration Laws
- Federal Pre-Emption
