Immigration 101: Immigration Reform

I don't know how many of us know what reform immigration is and why it is needed. Maybe you saw the marches all around the country March 21st but don't know what these immigrants are looking for. Watch this video: Tony & Janina

The family is the basic unit of our society, and immigrants who have the support of strong families are more likely to contribute to society, pay taxes, and start businesses that create jobs. But our broken
immigration system divides families and keeps loved ones apart for years
and even decades, which discourages them from following the rules and
working within the system.

It doesn’t make sense to spend billions of dollars rounding people up, breaking up families, shutting down businesses, and deporting people who are working, learning English, and putting down roots here. For
immigrants who don’t have legal status, we should require them to come
out of the shadows and register, pay taxes, and start working toward
becoming Americans, while keeping their families together.

Doesn't that make sense? So please if you can there will be a local rally here in El Paso this weekend at UTEP but if you can't please text JUSTICE to 69866
