America deserves a commonsense immigration process that includes a roadmap for new Americans who aspire to be citizens. Almost everyone agrees we need a reasonable immigration process to replace the current patchwork of mismanaged and broken policies and programs. People move their families here to provide a better life for their children and to contribute to our economy and culture. In order to do our part to welcome newcomers, we need to create a commonsense immigration process that recognizes the hardships and contributions of people moving here, keeps families together here in this country, and creates a roadmap to citizenship for new Americans who aspire to be citizens.

Here in North Carolina, no matter who you are, you have the freedom to be who you want to be, say what you want to say, and go where you want to go. America is supposed to be the land of the free and home of the brave; we need an immigration process that honors these ideals.
We are all better off when our communities are healthy and strong, we feel safe, and our children can thrive. As Americans, we all do our part to contribute, and we’re all the better for having hardworking new immigrants as members of our communities -‐ being customers in our stores, giving to local churches and charities, and participating as parents in our schools. That’s why we need an immigration process that strengthens, not divides, our communities.
In addition to the free bulletin insert, the Immigration Policy Center is offering a free one-page fact sheet about immigrants’ contributions to North Carolina. You can download the fact sheet here.
