National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
Reasoning:

“Congress must pass comprehensive immigration reform to provide permanent legal status to the 11.2 million undocumented individuals who already live and work in the U.S. Immigration reform is needed to allow these immigrants to fully participate in the economy, including homeownership. This reform should include provisions for addressing a pathway to citizenship, deportation relief, and immigrant and non-immigrant work visas.”
