I am the son of immigrants.
The immigrant experience defines the American narrative.
These stories are ones of courage and will: mothers who come to our border seeking refuge from violence, scholars who come to study, families who seek a better life.
We must call out unjust and cruel policies that seek to punish, demean, and harm immigrants and their families.
I will fight for our shared humanity by:
Protecting migrant children by demanding accountability from U.S. government agencies that oversee the protection of unaccompanied children
Calling for an immediate end to “zero tolerance” policies that separate parents from children at our borders
Bringing humane immigration policies to Congress that recognize families belong together
Ending family migrant detention and adopting evidence-based methods like the Family Case Management Program (FCMP) as alternatives to detention
Supporting the DREAM Act
Implementing smart border enforcement, not walls
Proposing legislation to end discriminatory immigration laws, such as the travel ban
Prioritizing enhanced engagement with our Central and South American partners to promote economic development and shared prosperity
