CARDIN TO HOLD ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIOIN ON 
IMMIGRATION REFORM 

Senator supports a thorough but fair legalization process

 

On Friday, May 10U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) will hold a roundtable discussion on immigration reform with stakeholders of comprehensive immigration reform.  On April 17, the Border Security Economic Opportunity and Immigration ActS. 744was introduced in the U.S. Senate. .   This measure would strengthen border security, create a fair legalization program, and create a workable system to ensure that employers only hire legal workers in the future. 

 
There is bipartisan support for immigration reform and for creating a fair pathway to citizenship for the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants now living in the United States.  Senator Cardin has spoken out in support of comprehensive reform legislation that will ensure our borders are secure and developing a process that will give millions of undocumented immigrants an opportunity to emerge from the shadows and find a path toward citizenship if they want to stay in this country.
