7. Immigration Reform is a children’s issue.
Want a staggering figure? Twenty-four percent of children in the United States are the children of immigrants. America was founded as a country of immigrants to serve as a safe place for all to come. It makes sense that we are a country filled with children with parents who came from elsewhere in the world.

Most immigrant families are low-income so policies regarding welfare, health care, literacy and early education affect them.
