Immigration

I am fighting for a comprehensive reform of our broken immigration system. I am fighting to restore DACA, Advance Parole, abolishing ICE/CBP, creating an independent federal agency staffed through the merit promotion system, shutting down the migrant concentration camps, returning every child to their parents, re-establishing the Temporary Protected Status program, and ending public funding for all private prisons and companies banking on our unjust immigration laws, removing the public charge rule, as well as restricting immigration authorities to operate only within the confines of their, the border and respective federal agencies where their presence is required by law or allowed by a warrant.

Families have been separated long before this administration, as it happened to me when I was a child. It is time we start treating people like people. Immigrants should not be treated differently. I will fight to ensure a pathway to citizenship and work permits for undocumented immigrants and DACA recipients and who have been model citizens and strong pillars for the nation's economic growth and well-being. They are our fathers, mothers, siblings and neighbors.
