The League of Women Voters recognizes that the state and America as a whole are lands of immigrants. They help weave the fabric and identity of our nation, and we believe it is critical for the U.S. to encourage their participation in our society and democracy.
• All persons should receive fair treatment under the law and it is critical for the U.S. to encourage immigrant participation in our democracy.
• We support federal immigration laws that provide efficient, expeditious systems for immigrants to enter the United States.
• Seeking asylum at points of entry into the United States is part of our legal immigration process. Assaults on asylum seekers is un-American.
• Congress must take immediate action to pass common sense, fair immigration policies that end the crisis at our border, ends the separation of families, and provides a path to citizenship.
