JSPAN Proposes Immigration Policy

Immigration issues continue to dominate the news as Congress struggles to reconcile diametrically opposite views adopted by the House and Senate. JSPAN has adopted a broad policy statement but must now decide its position on a host of concrete issues such as:
  • What to do about the existing, estimated 12 million, illegal immigrants in this country
  • Whether a temporary worker program should be established
  • Whether criminal penalties should be imposed on those who help illegal immigrant enter or stay her, such as employers and health care workers
  • Whether the National Guard should be deployed as part of border security
  • Whether illegal immigrants should be required to leave the United States as a condition of seeking to return to obtain citizenship
