Immigration Law

The Case for Protecting Legal Immigration -, Apr. 2018 - "Immigrants and immigration are good for our country, good for our communities, and good for our economy. The U.S.’ greatest competitive advantage has long been a culture that welcomes immigrants and provides them with the freedom and opportunity to thrive. For generations, immigration has been a unique source of civic and economic strength, which grows GDP, increases wages for Americans, and has helped the United States avoid the fate of stagnant economies that have further struggled with an aging workforce.

This report details the intentional effort by the current Administration and some Members of Congress to make immigration harder and more burdensome with the goal of reducing overall legal immigration. In the face of failed legislative efforts to reduce legal immigration levels drastically, the Administration has pursued a series of misguided
policies designed to impede aspiring Americans from immigrating legally to the United States, and to make it more difficult for those already here to take part in the American Dream. Growing attacks on legal immigration levels have brought about harmful regulations, unnecessary obstacles, and detrimental enforcement actions. ... 

This report will outline the overall benefits of immigrants and immigration, as well as the policies and regulations that have been pursued over the last year, and the impact on our families, communities, and economy."
