One of the biggest issue that plague American political debates is that of illegal immigration, namely the welfare and security of the immigrants. There are serious disparities in this country over what should be done regarding the current population of illegal migrants. Immigration has improved the United States (US) economy. If the United States loses its economic edge, its power will diminish hence, immigration policy is therefore crucial to the U.S. economic and political leadership. Democrats overwhelmingly say immigrants are a strength to the nation (83% say this) however, among Republicans, nearly half (49%) say they burden it.
For years, plans have sought to change the nation’s immigration system away from its current emphasis on family reunification and employment-based migration, and toward a points-based system that prioritizes the admission of immigrants with certain education and employment qualifications. Democrats and immigration advocates opposed many of the proposals outlined by Trump administration, scaling back the family-based immigration system, which allows immigrants to bring their spouses and children to live with them, and replacing it with a merit-based system that would provide opportunities for immigrants with valuable job skills and education.
As a democrat, Chris Murphy strongly believes in the value and economic importance of immigrants. Knowing the importance of fixing the immigration system in United States, he aims to create a tough but fair path for citizenship that takes into consideration the welfare and health needs of the immigrants. He urges for immediate action to be taken to end the unjust and cruel treatment of detainees at the borders. Mistreatment and unsanitary treatments should not be overlooked. Senator Chris Murphy believes that the biggest issue that plague the United States is the security of the detainees.
Fighting for better and juster treatment for immigrants, Chris Murphy introduced the Stop Cruelty to Migrant Children Act which will stop cruel and neglectful treatment of children at the U.S.-Mexico border and improve how children fleeing oppression are treated the ultimate resolution of their asylum case. irreparable damage to children at the border by separating families, denying them access to basic hygiene, and disregarding proper health and nutrition standards which were caused by the Trump administration policies, should be ended immediately. Better care and treatment must be provided especially to children. He hopes to end the family separation act and as well Setting minimum health and safety standards for children and families in Border Patrol Station. This will ensure the welfare and safety of the immigrants are well taken care of. Proper enforcement by the government should be put in place to ensure the treatment of the detainees is fairly done by providing necessary humanitarian assistance, and improve public oversight of the conditions children are being held in
