An America That Keeps the Doors Open to Citizenship Is Better for New Americans, Old Americans, and Americans Still to Come

An America That Keeps the Doors Open to Citizenship Is Better for New Americans, Old Americans, and Americans Still to Come

Dr. Roger Waldinger, Dr. Renee Luthra

President Trump’s latest compromise deal to end the government shutdown comes with strings—strict new anti-immigration rules on asylum, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA), and Temporary Protected Status (TPS). All children from the Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salavador would be automatically rejected from asylum. Current DACA and TPS recipients would have to reapply rather than renew their membership. TPS recipients would have to meet an income and nationality test. These proposals would leave many people with established lives in the U.S. in legal limbo.

No question, America is better, like most organizations, with a diverse membership across all spectrums.
Charging $725 + legal fees + cost to get here, tells me “the system” is trying to keep out the poor, that’s sad, the poor have a lot to offer too. Without their input, we will be poorer as a society for it.
