America has been presented a false choice between building walls or allowing ourselves to be overrun by those who threaten our safety and reject our values. The truth is that the vast majority of our immigrants are upstanding members of society who are making their own unique contribution to our nation. Our economy and our social fabric is made stronger by those who embrace our ideals and contribute to our economy in important ways. We must work together to craft a sensible immigration policy that recognizes these truths, that allow families to stay together, and that ensure our borders remain secure.
