With a global rise in immigration and migration concerns amidst a record number of refugees on the move, it is even more concerning that a significant majority of the world’s refugee population are migrating into second and third-world economies. As a country discovered and founded on the footsteps of hard-working immigrants, the United States owes a sense of responsibility and compassion to the global community in leading the movement for comprehensive immigration reform to adapt to the modern era of globalization. This includes moving away from the ideological strains of society and compromising to the actual issues at hand – the concern for economic security, national security, and public safety.
