Tikkun;May/Jun2010, Vol. 25 Issue 3, p11
The author explores the issue of immigration reform proposed by New York Senator Chuck Schumer and South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham. He notes the recommendation of the National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights to policymakers to focus on sustainable economic development and job creation to make migration as an option. He also suggests to include a commitment to the Global Marshall Plan to the immigration reform to legitimate the fear on increasing number of illegal immigrants.
