Dreams for Hope and a Future
The Political Importance of Bipartisan Immigration Reform
The issue of irregular migration impacts our communities and our schools. It limits opportunities for Latino youth and hinders their ability to obtain a quality education and the skills needed for a 21st century job market. Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) in five U.S. metropolitan areas cost local school districts more than $1 billion per year.
The root causes of out migration from the Northern Triangle (Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador) are not being addressed and our immigration policies provide the wrong incentives. We need a comprehensive approach that is bi-partisan and effective. This paper provides an overview of the problems and recommends actions for immigration reform, social and economic development in the Northern Triangle, and strengthened U.S. public schools impacted by irregular immigration.
Our dream is for a more united country, one that allows all sides to come together, find common ground and build a stronger nation. Immigration, economic growth and social justice are linked to public education in the United States and the fight to help Latino youth obtain a higher education begins in the Northern Triangle.
