Alan Gomez Biography

Title:
Immigration Reporter at USA Today
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“I get the anger. I understand the frustration. And whether you think granting US citizenship to undocumented immigrants is the right thing to do or unwarranted amnesty, there’s no question that Hispanics have been both buffeted and taken for granted by politicians in recent years.

But the only way to fix that is by continuing to enhance their political clout.”
