Immigration and Refugees

Emgage Action supports comprehensive immigration reform that includes a path to citizenship for those already in the United States who are working and paying taxes. We believe that the United States must uphold the rule of law, protect our boarders and national security. However, we also believe that every person must be treated with dignity and respect that protect families and enforce immigration laws humanely. We also support an open and welcoming refugee policy with continued application of vetting procedures to keep us safe. With 65 million refugees, we cannot turn our backs to the worst refugee crisis since WWII. We know from experience that refugees help revitalize communities and eventually become a net contributor to the economy and our country. In the words of Emma Lazarus, engraved at the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breath free.”
