Issue Position: Immigration
Whether your family was part of the voyage on the Mayflower, part of the millions who stepped off a ship at Ellis Island, part of those who were brought for this nation against their own will, or if, like my own parents, you came to this country fleeing tyranny and searching for freedom, we all have a connection to immigration. Unfortunately, our current immigration laws have failed us. That is why I support fair and humane immigration reform that will enforce our laws, secure our borders, and protect our national security, while also reflecting current economic realities and respecting the core values of family unity and fundamental fairness. We must find a way to address the 12 million undocumented workers in this country, but we must do so in a sensible and humane manner.
