There is an on-going controversy regarding Immigration to the United States. Donald Trump was elected President of the US on a platform that included "building a wall" on the US-Mexican border and exporting all the "criminal immigrants."
Others have noted that if the US does not want "those people" coming, the US should stop providing guns to the agents of state terror in their countries of origin.
Supporters of immigrant rights suggest two reforms to protect and advance society in general:
Driver's License/permit for undocumented immigrants/non citizens
People without proper documentation to be here are driving. Everyone else on the road would be safer if those people had valid driver's licenses.
Protect in state tuition
Many undocumented parents have been paying taxes for years, often paying into a fraudulent social security account, from which they have no hope of collecting. It's only simple justice, supporter say, that residents should have access to in-state tuition, regardless of whether they can document citizenship.
