Thousands rally for Immigration Reform in United States

Immigration Reform in United States Rallies

Over the weekend, thousands of people all over the United States rallied in cities like Las Vegas and Chicago demanding US immigration reform.

Senate Majority Leader and Representative Shelley Berkley told the crowd that immigration reform was a top priority and that her vision of it would include more border security and a guest worker program for seasonal workers. Another Representative said that he had introduced legislation that added a path to legal status for illegal immigrants.

The Reform Immigration for America campaign has been holding events like this to encourage Americans to demand immigration reform from their representatives.

During the events, the chair of the Reform Immigration for America campaign said, “They want action now from their senators in Washington, and they are rallying, marching, chanting, praying, lobbying and calling their elected leaders out until they get it. This movement will not rest until the President and the leadership of both houses of Congress have fulfilled their promises to fix our broken immigration system this year. ”

The campaign is putting pressure on lawmakers in the United States and already has the support of many officials and senators

The mission statement of the Reform Immigration for America campaign says that Immigration Reform in United States is “a common-sense solution to our broken immigration system that strengthens equal opportunity and the rule of law, treats hardworking immigrant families with respect and dignity, and moves all communities and families in America forward together.”

Another major component is that better wages, working conditions and labour protections are put in place to prevent employers from cheating immigrants.

Immigration Reform in United States is a big task

The immigration system in the United States has been called “broken”, and fixing it is a huge undertaking. There are often frightening immigration raids and families can be separated for a long time because of out-dated laws. The laws are also difficult to enforce, making illegal US  immigration easier for those looking to live and work in the United States.
