Immigration

Congresswoman Pelosi and children from We Belong Together, including San Franciscan Nashali de la Rosa, discussing the urgency of comprehensive immigration reform.

In America, the beauty is in the mix.  Immigration has always been a reinvigoration of our society and economy.  Each wave of immigrants brings their hopes, aspirations, faith, and determination to succeed to our shores.

With those uniquely American traits, each newcomer makes America more American.  And it is time for immigration reform that restores confidence in our history and our heritage as a people – by and large, a nation of immigrants.

That is why House Democrats introduced bipartisan, comprehensive legislation that would secure our borders, unite families, protect our workers, offer an earned pathway to citizenship to aspiring Americans, and reduce our nation’s deficit by nearly $1 trillion.

And while immigration reform remains an unsolved challenge for our nation as House Republicans continue to block efforts to bring up immigration reform with their obstructionism and excuses, House Democrats are leading the way towards a comprehensive fix to our country’s broken immigration system.

We will continue to work with on a bipartisan and comprehensive immigration solution that honors our American values and represents our needs as a nation.
