America’s immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and there are 11 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country.
It is time to act to fix the broken immigration system in a way that requires responsibility from everyone, both from the people here illegally and those who hire them, and guarantees that everyone is playing by the same rules.
We cannot allow immigration reform to get bogged down in an endless debate. Together we can build a fair, effective and commonsense immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.
