IDP and Partner Groups Issue Statement of Principles for Immigration Reforms

As the White House and Congress considers reforms to the federal immigration system, the nation has an opportunity to address some of the system’s most unfair aspects and simultaneously resist new harmful provisions that immigrants and advocates would have to fight for decades to come. To help guide advocacy for a more humane immigration system toward fairness for all immigrants, IDP along with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild and the Washington Defender Association have issued a one-page statement of needed reforms, “Principles for Immigration Reform that Promote Fairness for All Immigrants.”
