Immigration Rights In America
By: Samuel Rodarte, Wesley Pearl, Kyler Stevens, and Warren Blake Sanford
Immigration law refers to the rules established by the federal government for determining who is allowed to enter the country, and for how long.
The Immigration and Nationality Act, or INA, was created in 1952.
The Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA), the body of law governing current immigration policy, provides for an annual worldwide limit of 675,000 permanent immigrants,
What they have tried
Ways Immigrants immigrate
Immigrants have different ways of immigrating like they can get a green card or a visa in order to get to America. In order to get a visa you must be sponsored by a U.S. citizen relative or a prospective employer. Also you need a passport in order to get across the border but, many people just hope they can cross illegally. Another thing you need to cross the border legally is a green card and in order to get a green you need to take different types of classes in order to cross like classes to learn the pledge of allegiance.

On March 25, 2013, the New York Times published an article about the use, and overuse, of solitary confinement in immigration detention. It reported that 300 individuals are held in solitary confinement while awaiting resolution of their immigration cases, including one individual who was held for four months because of his sexual orientation.

Much like the issue raised by Congressman Spencer Bachus of Alabama at the House Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration detention on March 19th, the real question is why are these individuals even detained in the first place?

many of these facilities do not meet international standards for conditions of confinement where the sole purpose is administrative detention. This expanded use of immigration detention in the past 12 years where 34,000 individuals are in detention each day

Amnesty International is calling on the U.S. government to ensure that human rights principles underpin any reforms of the U.S. immigration system.

Jailed Without Justice
It’s clear that fixing our broken immigration system would boost our economy and help all workers by increasing the worker productivity, creating more jobs, improving wages of all workers, and reducing the deficit. After waiting over 500 days for the House to take action on legislative solutions to fix our broken system, the President took the executive actions that help boost our economy.
