Including In-Home Health Care Workers on Immigration Reform is Something Ronald Reagan Would Do. Please Read the White Paper from the Institute of Women's Policy Research
"In the 80's I went to the Salinas Valley and talked to farm workers. The Reagan White House wanted to hear their voices - I hope the GOP wants to listen to my words again. The immigration legislation must include those that are taking care of the 'greatest generation' & future generations. The Nannies & those that work in nursing homes deserve RESPECT..." Sharyn Bovat
Many employers HR leaders say that lack of quality senior care is NOW a reason why
some executives take leave. In fact it's calculated that 1.2 days are taken by senior executives to deal
with issues in reference to eldercare. This is something that needs to be researched. Allowing for women to immigrate to be care takers could help the economy. These workers pay taxes (sales tax & other fees for services ... making someone legal means making them "pay their fair share).

IV. In-Home Care Workers in the U.S. Workforce: Paths to Legal Admission
Approximately 38 million immigrants live in the United States, having come from various countries and for different reasons (Hess, Henrici, and Williams 2011). Those who migrated with legal documentation did so through two channels: temporary and permanent admissions. Each channel offers multiple avenues with different requirements and specifications, and each also offers several options for legal entry that allow for employment. The lack of a generally “good fit” between the U.S. visa-endorsed employment paths and immigrant in-home care workers, however, leaves many of these workers with either very limited legal options for entering the country or with none at all (Chishti 2011; Martin et al. 2009).
