Green Party on Immigration

Party Platform


Permanent border passes to all citizens of Mexico

The Green Party calls for permanent border passes to all citizens of Mexico and Canada whose identity can be traced and verified. The "matricula consular" should be accepted as one means of proving one's identity. Work permits for citizens of Mexico and Canada must be easily obtainable, thereby decriminalizing the act of gainful employment. This action would help eliminate exploitation of undocumented persons by criminals engaged in human contraband (coyotes) and unethical employers. It would also help ensure that taxes will be paid in each corresponding nation per its laws. These measures will also help temporary residents from Mexico and Canada to secure driving privileges and liability insurance.

Give undocumented immigrants a chance to become US citizens

Undocumented immigrants should be granted a legal status which includes the chance to become US citizens with minimal processing fees and credit for all payments into the Social Security System which have been placed in “Suspense Files”.
