Mike Miles on Immigration


Support Legal Immigration

We should create earned legalization or guest worker programs. Undocumented workers who can demonstrate having worked legally in the US over the last 5 years and who have not committed a felony should be given the opportunity to become a legal immigrant. We should expand guest worker programs to make it easier for companies that can demonstrate a shortage of labor in a particular area to be able to legally hire immigrants and for such laborers to more easily receive documents that grant legal status.

Expand earned legalization and guest workers

We should expand or create earned legalization or guest worker programs. Undocumented workers who can demonstrate having worked legally in the US over the last five years and who have not committed a felony should be given the opportunity to become a legal immigrant. We should expand guest worker programs to make it easier for companies that can demonstrate a shortage of labor in a particular area to be able to legally hire immigrants and for such laborers to more easily receive documents that grant legal status. The US should work with foreign governments, especially Mexico, to streamline guest worker applications and validate acceptable forms of identification, including matriculas.

We need to take active steps to punish companies that employ undocumented workers, make under-the-table payments, abuse guest workers and temporary workers or undercut their rights under state or federal labor laws.
