National Immigration Working Group

The National Immigration Working Group is composed of state legislators from across the country committed to supporting pro-immigrant policies at the state and federal level including comprehensive immigration reform.

We believe that:

  • Our communities are richer when we give new immigrants the opportunity to contribute and participate fully in our society.
  • Our focus should be on raising wage standards for all workers not punishing a small subset of immigrant workers.
  • No members of our community should be fearful of reporting crimes or aiding the investigations of the police.
