WASHINGTON, D.C. — Veterans will discuss their support for a bipartisan solution on immigration that strengthens our national security, enhances our military readiness and supports our immigrant service members at a panel discussion on Monday.

Veterans for New Americans, a project of the National Immigration Forum, is a national network of influential veterans representing each of the military branches. Members of the initiative will speak about how current immigration laws affect our immigrant men and women in uniform, as well as immigrant veterans.
