Thinking about policy

The League spends a lot of time educating its members about national and local issues. This year the National League has conducted a study on Immigration policy in the U.S. and what principles should guide it. The local San Francisco League has been meeting this week to discuss different facets of immigration and how they should be approached. Should we build a fence along our border? Is family reunification more important than meeting the needs of employers? Should health and age be factors in deciding who is accepted for immigration? All these questions are important and citizens who spend time thinking about them can influence their legislators to produce the kind of legislation we want. The decisions reached today in S.F. will be sent to the National League, which will then try to put together the overall positions of the League. This grassroots project to solicit thoughtful input from all over the country should lead to important and influential policy decisions.
