Presidential Pamphlet

Olivia Curielli and Brittany Kay

Our issue: Immigration

1. Our issue is Immigration and illegal immigrants entering the United States. Mexicans make up 49% of all immigrants in the U.S. California, Texas, Florida, New York, New Jersey and Illinois take account for the unauthorized immigrants. Unauthorized immigrants make up 5.1% of the U.S. labor force. In K-12 schooling, 7% of the students have at least one unauthorized immigrant parent.

In 1965 congress passed the immigration and Nationality Act. As a result of this act, the nation experienced a shift in immigration patterns.

2. If we were president, we would go tot the most populated states of immigration and increase the guards and police there. We would also put up walls and watch the border more carefully.

We would use the veto power to veto anything that support immigrants. We would also us the role of Chief Executive to make executive orders regarding the immigrant issue. We would also use the role of Commander-in-Chief to put armed forces by the borders to decrease immigration.
