Alan Khazei on Immigration
Immigration has been critical to America's past, and it will continue to be critical to our future. We need commonsense immigration reform, including an earned path to citizenship. It's time to bring millions of undocumented immigrants out of the shadows and into th light of our democracy. Many of these hardworking men and women do the most difficult jobs we have in our society.
In conjunction with allowing undocumented immigrants to earn citizenship, we need to do a better job securing our border. We must improve our ability to verify workers' employment eligibility and punish employers who knowingly violate our laws. We should also work to encourage economic development abroad so that foreign citizens are able to enjoy greater opportunities at home.
