Pro to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
“Legalization and naturalization of undocumented immigrants would bolster their wages… Immigration reform that includes a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants in five years would increase the earnings of all American workers by $618 billion over the next decade... Granting citizenship to undocumented immigrants would create jobs and increase tax revenues… Citizenship would allow millions of undocumented immigrants to work on the books and contribute to Social Security… The solvency of the Medicare trust fund would be extended if the undocumented population were able to gain legal status and citizenship."

"Build an opportunity nation where every hard-working person, regardless of background, can realize their dreams through education, decent work and fair play. Reawaken America's conscience, our sense of shared and personal responsibility, to build healthy, vibrant communities. Reform government so that it is of, by and for the people: open, effective, and committed to the common good. Use America's strength to bring the world together, not pull it apart."
