Humanity at Our Border

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

In the weeks and months to come, I will publish more pages with my thoughts on a range of policy topics – from foreign policy, to equality, to ethics in government.
