Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

The Need for Reform

Without addressing the poverty that is the core cause of immigration from Latin America, U.S. immigration policy will be ineffective in stemming the flow of unauthorized immigrants.

Without a rational system that connects available Latin American workers with labor needs in the United States, the costs for both immigrants and American society increase.

The current system relegates unauthorized immigrants to the bottom of the U.S. socioeconomic system – permanently.

U.S. immigration policy does not enable immigrants to break the cycle of poverty by allowing them opportunities to improve their lives and those of their families by advancing professionally, pursuing further education, and fully integrating into their communities.
