Raja Krishnamoorthi on Immigration
Raja also supports the DREAM Act to provide a path to citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants who have known no other home and meaningfully staked their roots in America.
Raja believes that foreign students who have earned a graduate degree in the U.S. and entrepreneurs who have secured enough investment to start a business here should be granted a temporary visa to pursue their dreams in our country.
The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Immigration: Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
