“Our nation, and the freedoms that define it, was built by immigrants who sought a better life and safer future for their children,” said Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum. “Our shared history demonstrates that a welcoming, compassionate America is a stronger one.”
“This Independence Day, we celebrate the values that define our nation and encourage all Americans to embrace an immigration approach that upholds them.”
