As Congress considers comprehensive immigration reform, it's important for the aging and disability communities to be engaged. Immigration reform:

  • Provides opportunities to strengthen the direct care workforce and address the projected shortage of workers as the baby boom generation ages and more individuals need long-term services and supports.
  • Must remain fully inclusive of aging immigrants and immigrants with disabilities and provide access to health and economic security benefits.
  • Can increase the number of younger workers, strengthen the Social Security trust fund, and produce economic benefits for the country as a whole.

Get an overview of key issues in immigration reform and a vision for creating a more just and caring society across generations.
