Granite Staters for Common Sense Immigration Reform


Granite Staters for Common Sense Immigration Reform is a grassroots organization comprised of local New Hampshire business, community, and political leaders. Our goal is to highlight the need to reform our broken immigration system and encourage a constructive dialogue between New Hampshire voters and the candidates participating in New Hampshire’s First in the Nation Presidential Primary. Specifically, we would like each of the candidates to address the need to secure our border, improve our H-1B visa and guest worker programs, and offer practical solutions to address the estimated 11.5 million undocumented immigrants already living in our country.
