Michael Nutter on Immigration



Advocates path to citizenship and immigration reform

We must not ignore the plight of individuals whose status here is undocumented. We must provide a pathway to citizenship for people who want is to pursue the American dream. This pathway should require them to recognize the responsibilities that come with being an American. That we are a nation of immigrants is one of the defining characteristics of the US.
