U.S. Senator Ron Johnson Expresses Commitment to Immigration Reform at a Milwaukee, WI Forumby Gamino Law Offices on 07/19/13
There’s good news for immigrants in Milwaukee this week after Republican U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson expressed his commitment to immigration reform during a Milwaukee forum, pledging to work with lawmakers to reduce the threat of deportation.
During a legislative speaker event, Johnson appealed to the audience at the Esperanza Unida, an organization which provides job-training services for immigrants, stressing the importance of immigration reform and how he is working on ending what he calls an “inhumane” system that encourages illegal immigration by leaving foreigners to hide in fear of deportation, instead of giving them hope to obtain legal status.
The Senator is working on legislation that will allow immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally, but who have followed the law and have contributed to society, to remain in the country without the threat of deportation.
He believes the country is partially to blame for the increase in illegal immigration due to our poor boarder security and has met with U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan and other House members to work on a bill that will provide probation for undocumented immigrants who are doing everything they can just to work hard and provide a good life for themselves and their loved ones.
There are thousands of immigrants living in Wisconsin, many of which are undocumented. While they may dream of the day they can obtain legal status, immigrants are forced into hiding for fear of deportation.
But while the fear is understandable, it’s important for all immigrants to know they have a right to seek legal help.
