Immigration websites

This website is for the NCLR which stands for the National Council of La Raza. This organisation is the largest national Hispanic civil rights organisation in the United States. They state on their website that they aim to improve opportunities for Hispanic Americans by focusing of five key areas. These areas are, assets/investments, civil rights/immigration, education, employment, economic status and health.

They aim to help those that came to America as children and are still viewed as illegal immigrants by helping those that meet the requirements of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to come forward and apply to become legal citizens. They state that they have already helped more than half a million people apply for DACA. They also help parents of U.S citizens to apply for deferred action under the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program, which will allow illegal residents to stay in the U.S because their children are U.S. citizens. This would not mean they are legal citizens but it would allow them to continue their lives in the U.S. without the immediate threat of deportation.
They also aim to improve national security by having illegal residents come forward and under go background checks. They also state that they aim to strengthen the economy by having immigrants who are working do so legally, so they will be contributing more taxes, and prevent employers from employing immigrants so that they can take advantage of the system.

This website is for the Americans for Immigration Control, Inc. They were founded in 1983 with the intention of stopping illegal immigrants who sneak across the border from Mexico. They also aim to deport any illegal immigrants already in the U.S. 

They state that “AIC is about strictly enforcing the current immigration laws” and they also focus on increasing penalties for “those who knowingly transport, recruit, solicit, or hire illegal aliens.”

They use a lot of strong phrases such as, “AIC is about demanding that our federal government immediately use maximum manpower and support equipment to secure our nation from terrorists, drug smugglers, and illegals.” They have the strong opinion that anyone that is illegally in the U.S. is at fault and must be immediately removed from the country. They make illegal immigrants sound like a faceless group of criminals and they don’t seem to consider those that are here for a better life, such as families.
