Eleven million people live in the shadows of our society. Unfortunately, our immigration system is broken, failing to bring these immigrants out of the shadows and fully integrate them into our economy.
We need comprehensive immigration reform that makes sense for workers, businesses and families, including a path to citizenship for those who play by the rules and live up to American ideals. This will strengthen our economy and expand our tax base. Notably, the Congressional Budget Office reports that passing immigration reform would cut the federal deficit by $200 billion over the next 10 years.
