Read AIC Board Member Matthew Hirsch's Op-Ed on the Case for Immigration Reform
Published on Sat, Dec 08, 2012
American Immigration Council Board Member Matthew Hirsch published a piece on the need for immigration reform in the Patriot News on the PennLive website. Here's an excerpt:
"Since the election, renewed attention has been focused on the issue of immigration reform and, like boxers circling in the ring, opposing sides seem to be inching toward some kind of compromise. The Republican leadership recognizes that shifting demographics helped President Obama win re-election, and it does not want to be the party of 'No' on immigration.
Both parties also understand that Congress is seen by the public as a pit of petty partisanship, and they view immigration as an issue that has the potential for a bipartisan bill they all can claim as their own.
These are good reasons for compromise on immigration, but there are at least five other good reasons for supporting immigration reform, which includes legalization of the undocumented."
