America’s immigration system is broken. 

Comprehensive immigration reform will jump start our economy, lower our deficit, and create jobs.  Currently, more than 11 million undocumented people live and work in the United States, many of whom have lived here their entire lives. We owe it to millions of Americans and aspiring citizens to consider this issue seriously and produce a solution. 

I support DREAMers. They have been raised here, attend our schools, graduate from our universities, and serve in our military. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program protected these young people. They deserve to have a chance to earn their way to citizenship, and former President Trump’s decision to terminate DACA was a cruel, broken promise. That’s why I invited Alex DeLeon, a participant in the DACA program, to then President Trump’s 2019 State of the Union Address as my guest. Her story is like that of so many other young, talented, inspiring DREAMers – a stark reminder that Trump’s cruel actions had impacts on millions of people, and that we must keep fighting for solutions to our broken immigration system.
