Support real immigration reform

This petition had 89 supporters

I’m sure we would all agree, we are a nation of immigrants. Over10 million immigrants currently live in our country illegally. Most were attracted by low-wage jobs unwanted by U.S. citizens in agriculture and service industries. With few exceptions they live responsibly, raising families and paying taxes just as legal residents do. Although they are accused of draining American health and education resources, comprehensive studies show that undocumented aliens contribute as much as they take from the national economy. Still, they are unable to live normal lives and make their full contribution to society. This while costly attempts to stop illegal immigration are failing, and it is time to consider alternatives. For the good of our nation and in fairness to immigrants, Washington must set clear guidelines, quotas and policies regarding people from other countries who live and work in the United States, and who want to become U.S. citizens. I urge the White House and Congress to support comprehensive immigration reform as proposed in HR 4321; with changes, now- or, at least, the Dream Act, now.
