One of America's greatest strengths is that we are a nation of immigrants. The immigrants that built this country did so by working hard to contribute to the economy and becoming productive members of American society. This country would not be where we are today if it had not been for the enterprising devotion and entrepreneurial spirit of legal immigrants.
As a member of the Immigration Reform Caucus, Congressman Sessions works with other like-minded member of the House to address our country's flawed immigration laws. Congressman Sessions uses this Caucus as a platform to deal with the concerns many of his constituents share about massive immigration and he works with other Members of Congress in a concerted effort to facilitate Congressional action.
The immigration debate has become highly polarized and politicized in the current Congress. Congressman Sessions believes that an effective immigration plan must be straightforward, concise, and thorough, and in the best interest of American citizens. Key provisions of this plan must secure the entire U.S. Border, document the estimated 12 million undocumented persons, establish a true Guest Worker Program, safeguard social programs, and strengthen interior enforcement.
We must work to ensure that illegal immigration stops, and that legal immigration is controlled in a reasonable manner. As the favored location of immigrants throughout the world, America has a responsibility to its citizens to grow in a contained, but reasonable manner.
