Realistic Solutions for Fixing a Broken System

April 2013

America is a nation of immigrants. It is also governed by the rule of law. Today’s U.S. immigration system fails to honor those values. Eleven million immigrants live in the United States illegally, and legal channels for immigration fail to meet the needs of the U.S. economy.

The time has come for realistic immigration solutions that will both strengthen national security and boost economic growth. America needs an immigration system that places more resources toward enforcement of laws, produces a more dynamic and skilled labor force, and enables U.S. businesses and workers to compete more effectively in the global marketplace. Getting reform right is essential to a healthier economy — accelerating growth, encouraging hiring and creating jobs.

That is why, as American business leaders, the Business Roundtable proposes common sense solutions that will better secure U.S. borders; provide for consistent enforcement of laws; and encourage immigrants to come here legally, work hard and contribute to America.
