Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"As migrant human capital has grown in recent decades between the United States and Central America, Congress has been unable to pass comprehensive immigration policy reform. The existing policy regime has significant shortcomings, especially with respect to protections for child migrants and family reunification... It is time to recognize that these children need protections in the form of permanent legal status to reunify with their families. If the United States cannot pass comprehensive immigration reform, at minimum it should provide for the children of immigrants it readily employs."
