Current Issue

Immigration Reform

change the current immigration policy that will improve it by amending or reform faults or abuses.

As President of the United States I would allow immigrants to be in our country. To make it so we don't have as many illegal immigrants who could get in trouble I would make it much easier to become a legal immigrant. According to the graph on the side a large majority of the population believes that they should be allowed in the United States.

who: Immigrants (Illegal and legal)

what: make it legal for them to be in our country

when: when i come president

where: The United States

why: These immigrants who are coming to the United States are coming here for a reason and we should allow them to be here so they can live a good life.

I would use leadership qualities that the population wants the President to possess to help me solve this issue. I would use my ability to unify the nation to come together and explain why I believe this issue should be solved this way. I would use my role of Chief Legislator to voice my ideas and opinions on this topic, and sign a bill that would help me achieve this.
