National Guard Border Troops Moving On

Released on Sun, Jun 29, 2008

June 2008 marks the two-year anniversary and the end of Operation Jump Start, a joint program by the Border Patrol and Department of Defense. Yet, the persistence of undocumented immigration indicates that Operation Jump Start is anything but a success.

President Declares Ongoing Commitment to Immigration Reform

Released on Wed, Jan 27, 2010

 
Washington D.C. - In the State of the Union Address this evening President Obama made clear his ongoing commitment to immigration reform noting "we should continue the work of fixing our broken immigration system - to secure our borders, enforce our laws, and ensure that everyone who plays by the rules can contribute to our economy and enrich our nation." Some may continue to argue that immigration reform is too politically risky to move on this year and that we should focus instead on rebuilding our economy. However, comprehensive immigration reform is compatible with economic reform as it would generate needed economic growth, create jobs and increase tax contributions by ensuring that everyone working in the United States is doing so legally. In fact, immigration reform would allow us to take full advantage of the opportunities for economic growth that immigrants bring.
