Why Immigration Matters in 2016

By Shayn Prapaisilp, Director of Membership of St. Louis Young Democrats

Immigration has once again emerged as a hot-button issue, this time for the 2016 election cycle. Not only is immigration an issue for domestic policymakers to tackle, but foreign policymakers must also confront the terrible plight of the the Syrian refugee crisis which has grabbed the world’s attention. As a nation built and made great by immigrants, how should we respond to the issues and shortfalls in our immigration system? The facts are clear. There are millions of undocumented immigrants living here now in the United States working and often times paying taxes to fund benefits they will never get. There are also millions of other people waiting in line to legally immigrate to the U.S. It is imperative that our current and future leaders pursue a fair and humane comprehensive immigration plan that keeps families together and provides a path to citizenship to people already here and people wishing to come. If we were to examine the rhetoric about immigration the issue and immigrants themselves it's clear that the Democratic Party leads the way on this issue.
