Congresswoman Clarke Redefines Immigration Reform Discussion

Washington, DC newspaper, published an op-ed of Congresswoman Yvette D. Clarke (NY-11) encouraging her colleagues to engage in a conversation on immigration reform that addresses the entire immigrant population and takes into account the nuances of immigration including the impact of the inadequacies of various agencies.


“Our current immigration system is literally tearing families apart, leaving children to fend for themselves, or in the care of relatives, neighbors of the foster care system after families have been deported.  Working out a comprehensive immigration reform bill will take time.  As the child of immigrants, I’m encouraged that Congress is finally having a conversation about immigration reform.  But to pretend reform can occur through a ‘one size fits all’ approach does our nation more harm than good.”
