Immigration: Reform Must Address Root Causes

Migration has been a consistent aspect of the human experience throughout history and continues to be a defining characteristic of the United States. Migration is closely linked to economic, social and political realities that influence the decision, and often the necessity, for people to migrate. Currently close to 200 million people live outside their country of birth worldwide. Many of these are economic migrants— who struggle to meet the basic needs of their families in their home countries.

Take action to let your members of Congress know that you support comprehensive immigration reform that addresses the root causes of migration.
