The American Immigration Council recently released a sign-on letter joined by more than 600 professors and scholars from across the America who pushes for immigration reform. The scholars who signed-on the letter are affiliated with more than 300 universities which include Ivy League and community colleges, state universities and private religious institutions.
The letter opens with:
“The history of America is a history of immigration. Starting with our country’s founding by idealistic newcomers, the waves of immigrants who settled in the United States have continuously added to our culture and national identity. However, America’s immigration system has become out of step with the social and economic needs of our nation and, therefore, we believe policies must change. As university professors from across the United States, we believe that reforming our immigration laws is both the right thing to do and is in our nation’s best interests. As the community responsible for educating the next generation of Americans, we see the harm that a broken immigration system has had on our students and their families.”
