The U.S. immigration system has been under some scrutiny some time now, with much of the recent focus centering on the November 2014 immigration executive action taken by President Barack Obama.
While we’ve spent some time in our recent blogs pointing out the provisions and other important info related to this recent immigration executive action, now, we think is a good time to take a look behind the proverbial curtain and seek just how these actions are intended to “fix a broken immigration system” and bring about some real immigration reform in the U.S.
To shed some more light on this, in this blog series, we will point out and discuss the four primary issues that the White House has identified as being critical to effective immigration reform in the U.S.
While the discussion herein is informative and insightful, don’t hesitate to contact the experienced Los Angeles immigration lawyers at the Hanlon Law Group, PC when you or someone you love needs any assistance with an immigration-related issue.
How to Fix a Broken Immigration System: The Issues Central to Reform
According to the White House, the primary issues central to realizing immigration reform in the U.S. are as follows:
- The strength of border security – In particular, the White House is currently focused on continuing to bolster U.S. border security.While this generally includes building on the progress made since the number of Border Patrol officers in the U.S. has been doubled, it also involves, as the White House has noted, the development of the technologies and infrastructures relied on to assess and address threats to U.S. national security.
- Accountability for hiring undocumented workers – In particular, this aspect of the White House plan to fix a broken immigration system involves cracking down on employers who intentionally hire undocumented workers.Additionally, this includes providing businesses that comply with the rules reliable methods of establishing the legal status of their employees.
We’ll continue this discussion regarding how to fix a broken immigration system (according to the White House) in the second installment of this blog series that will be published soon. Don’t miss it!
