The United States is a country made up of immigrants, and it is part of what makes us so strong and vibrant. We must enact immigration reform that is humane and addresses the growing disconnect between our nation's policy and the reality on the ground in cities and communities across our country.
I have hosted several citizenship workshops in San Francisco, providing free assistance to individuals who are eligible to apply for American citizenship. These newest Americans exemplify what our nation is all about. We gain strength from our newest citizens, and passing comprehensive immigration reform will ensure that America keeps growing stronger.
