A secure border and dignity for those seeking a better life
The American immigration system as it exists today fails to address the needs of our economy, our families, and our national security. Senator Casey believes we must take an accountable, commonsense approach to immigration reform. This means enacting policies that bring undocumented immigrants out of the shadows and into our communities and economy, secure our borders, unite families, and ensure individuals fleeing violence and persecution who arrive at our shores have a fair opportunity to petition the government for asylum – and are well cared for while they do so.
Senator Casey also believes that we must work with other countries, especially in Central America, to address the root causes of migration. Fundamentally, Senator Casey believes the United States – a Nation of immigrants and a Nation of laws – must foster a system that treats all individuals with compassion and dignity, while also securing our border and protecting our national security.
