Compassion Respect Dignity
These are the words that represent Immigrant Tax Inquiry Groups’ (ITIG) transitional model for immigration reform. Our report facilitates caring for our undocumented immigrants while in the US. Some desire citizenship while others do not. Mindful of goals, our plan generates $103 billion, creates 100,000 jobs and provides benefits consistent with our objectives.
Our mission is to provide a compassionate process for immigrants to assimilate into American society with dignity, respect, and ease.
Roughly 30 million Americans enjoy the skills of the 11 million undocumented immigrants who process our chickens, clean our homes and harvest our fruit. Pew Research tells us that they work for 25% less than legal immigrants. The factories, farms and homeowners that illegally hire our 8.5 million working undocumented immigrants get a bargain – plenty of cheap labor – and other American taxpayers pay for the immigrants’ public services.
The ITIG report is about an opportunity to provide health care, educational needs, and other essentials for undocumented immigrants. It supports border security and offers other benefits for Americans. We can do this only if we reject mass citizenship and all related taxes* and focus on developing a more effective tax structure to accompany the new Special Work Permit.
*The report details current negligent immigrant tax policies.
