The proposed rule would raise the invisible wall to massive new heights. Under the proposal, millions of current and aspiring immigrants who have done nothing wrong and simply followed the rules could be separated from their families and prevented from pursuing the American dream. The proposed rule is the Trump administration's latest assault on immigrant families who are integral to the fabric of American society and have been pivotal to our nation's success.
This plan will damage the American economy by jeopardizing the ability of hard-working, entrepreneurial immigrants from obtaining permanent residence. Overwhelming nonpartisan evidence and analysis shows that working-class immigrants are essential to a strong U.S. economy. This proposed rule would weaken our economy by creating arbitrary barriers to lawful status for those who may be just starting out on their path to economic prosperity.
This rule represents yet another attempt by the Trump administration to fundamentally change our immigration system without Congressional action.
