reform is a hot political debate. Both conservatives and liberals agree that
there needs to be comprehensive immigration reform, but cannot agree on how to
achieve this goal.
Monday’s debate, Mitt Romney suggested that one solution to the immigration
problem is to encourage immigrants to deport themselves. Romney also weighed in
on The DREAM Act, which would allow a path to citizenship to college age
children and military members, who were brought to the country by their
parents. While Romney agrees that military members should be given amnesty eh
would not approve the motion for college students.
of the people that would benefit from the DREAM Act were brought to the states
by parents who failed to get visas or citizenship with the help of an immigration attorney.
Gingrich weighed in the immigration debate and called Romney’s idea of
self-deportation a fantasy when speaking to Univision.
own immigration plan would include amnesty for immigrants living the country
for 20 to 25 years. He agrees with giving amnesty to military members. This
however does not offer a solution for the children who have been brought to the
country illegally. Gingrich has also stated he would reform the visa system.
there is immigration reform the system will still be difficult to navigate
without the assistance of an immigration lawyer and many people still face the possibility of deportation. The
diligent work of immigration attorneys
has helped many people gain citizenship and become fully recognized citizens.
