Vernon Jones: Supports comprehensive immigration reform & work visas

We are a country of immigrants. But, we are also a country with laws and a belief in fairness. Therefore, I support legal immigration and immigration reform. The 1st step to comprehensive immigration reform is to secure the borders and enforce the law. The 2nd step should be to modernize & streamline the legal citizenship process. Today, it is plagued by bureaucracy, long lines, & apathy. The 3rd step will be to address temporary and long-term work visas. We must insist on an equitable and fair process
