Presidential Candidates Should Debate Sensible Stances on Immigration Reform
“Impeachment” continues to delay Congress from the important issues that it should be working to fix. There is little talk from Democrat presidential candidates about fixing our broken immigration system. In fact, the topic of immigration was hardly mentioned in the last Democrat presidential debate.
Immigration reform is an important topic about which there should a spirited debate!
Polls show that immigration ranks higher as a key issue for Republican and independent voters than it does for Democrat voters. However, if Democrat candidates want to attract independent voters, they should be making sensible reform a campaign priority.
There is no doubt that President Trump will make immigration a key issue in the general election. The Democrat nominee and President Trump will be forced to debate immigration unless Congress addresses and solves the issue now.
While President Trump is certainly an advocate for improving border security and deterring illegal immigration, he has also called for a legislative solution to allow Dreamers to stay, and he continuously acknowledges that we need workers. No reasonable person can argue against a method to allow the eleven million undocumented immigrants in our country to earn legal status, be positively identified, and be required to work only for employers that deduct and match taxes! It is a “no brainer”!
It is my hope and prayer that presidential candidates will support sensible immigration reform that includes improving our national security while allowing our nation to continue to benefit from the irreplaceable daily labor provided by undocumented immigrants.
Please urge your Representative and Senators Cruz and Cornyn to support sensible immigration reform.
God bless you and may He continue to bless America.
