Immigration

 

“The land flourished because it was fed from so many sources--because it was nourished by so many cultures and traditions and peoples.” ― Lyndon B. Johnson

 

 

 

All discussions regarding Immigration must start with the acknowledgement of the human beings involved. Immigrants participate in our society and economy at all levels, as taxpayers, business owners, and consumers.  We must create a system that will keep the United States safe while also keeping immigrant families intact.

We must-

 

  • protect DACA recipients.

  • create a path to citizenship and legal immigration.

  • close private detention centers.

  • address barriers to those seeking asylum.

  • end deputization of local law enforcement officials in partnership with ICE.
