    • Strengthening of community services and public sectors through the contributions of participants.

    • Reduction in the number of undocumented immigrants and enhancement of national security through legal documentation and oversight.

Conclusion: This proposal presents a balanced and fair approach to addressing the issue of undocumented immigration. By requiring a seven-year service commitment, it ensures that new citizens have demonstrated their dedication to the country and contributed positively to society.
