Improving Citizenship Programs To Reflect Support For Continued Immigration

Written by on April 22, 2021 in Laws and Lawyers with 0 Comments

Over 75% of Americans believe immigration is beneficial for the country, and even more would support plans for unauthorized immigrants currently living in the US to gain citizenship. The country is a nation built by settlers from other countries, and immigrants currently make up almost 14% of the population. Governments rely on immigration for population growth and cultural change. However, despite support for continued immigration, issues over border security and undocumented migrants continue to make the process of becoming a lawful citizen slow and complex.

Navigating Routes To Lawful Immigration

Throughout history, immigration has made a significant and positive contribution to the economic, social and cultural development of the country. However, over time, immigration procedures have become more complex, as requirements have evolved and different political parties have repeatedly revised the process. There are several approaches to immigration that depend on the status of the individual applying to enter the country. Skilled temporary workers can apply for a work visa, while families might want to apply for reunification to allow them to stay together permanently. At, attorneys note that navigating all these different aspects of immigration law can be confusing for applicants. With professional legal advice, both employers and potential immigrants can find the right solution for their situation, and be reassured that their application meets strict legal requirements.

Comprehensive Reform Of The System

While the majority of Americans support immigration, they also see a need for major change. A recent survey revealed that over 50% of Latinos believe the immigration system needs to be overhauled. The current administration agrees, and is looking for bipartisan support for a comprehensive new immigration bill known as the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021. There are currently almost 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country, and the bill would allow them to become legal citizens over a period of eight years. Included in the bill are proposals for two faster pathways to citizenship for essential farmworkers and people who were brought to the country illegally as children.

Despite general support for legal immigration, the process to apply for legal status can be complex, and many people are calling for it to be changed. In response, the current government is proposing a new bill to make the process of becoming a legal citizen more straightforward for undocumented immigrants.
