For Family Values

FACT: Immigration reform respects true family values

If we pass comprehensive immigration reform, we uphold American family values:

  • Immigrant families that are now torn apart by detention, deportation and visa delays will be kept together.
  • Immigrants who are not criminals will stop crowding detention centers for months or years at a time.
  • The Social Security system will be buttressed when younger immigrant workers are able to contribute to it and ensure that aging American receive benefits.
  • Immigrant children, who should not suffer for a decision their parents made to immigrate, will get an opportunity to go to college and join a better-educated, more competitive American workforce.
  • The need for illegal immigration will be reduced when visa delays and visa caps are tackled and families can reunify in the United States legally.
  • Our American values of fairness, compassion and family unity will be upheld.
