Program areas at America Is Better

Commonsense immigration reform & integration - america is better supports replacing our broken immigration system with commonsense solutions that address the full scope of the system. Our immigration system needs to address the economic needs of our country as well as maintain our family values. It supports efforts to promote citizenship, civic education and active involvement in community life, including making changes to our country's naturalization process that will make it more accessible and efficient for immigrants.

General immigration policy - america is better advocates for the value of immigrants and immigration to our nation. The forum works for comprehensive immigration reform, sound border-security policies and balanced enforcement of immigration laws, as well as to ensure that new americans have the opportunities, skills and status to reach their fullest potential.

Communications - aib's communications team is a strategic partner, working with all aib departments (policy, constituencies, integration, development) to articulate messages and advance strategies to build support for commonsense immigration reform among our center right constituencies. The communications team differentiates itself in the immigration advocacy space by leveraging its relationships in media, business, academia and other areas to amplify the aib's messages.
