Our immigration policies are critical to our security, our prosperity, and our people.
Despite their importance, however, our current immigration policies do not serve any of these interests very well. The last major overhaul of our immigration laws took place over 50 years ago, in 1965. By failing to make needed changes over the years, and by failing to enforce rules against employers who hire undocumented migrants, Democrats and Republicans alike have allowed immigration to become one of the most divisive issues in American politics. New immigration policies can improve our security, increase our prosperity, and provide long overdue answers for the millions of undocumented migrant families living and working in the U.S.
