A Welcoming Nation of Immigrants

For centuries, immigrants have been a source of hard work and innovation for our nation. Yet, it’s no secret that our immigration system is broken. America was built as a nation of immigrants, with millions journeying across the seas in search of a better life and the vision of our shared American Dream. Every single family in America came here from somewhere else in search of that dream – some are native to our shores, some came by choice, some came by necessity, and others came by chains.

Yet today, dark political forces seek to scapegoat our history and our heritage for political gain; rather than seek to meaningfully address the problems that we all share. We, as a people, are at our strongest when we extend a hand to brothers and sisters around the world. The golden torch of Lady Liberty has stood through time as a shining beacon of freedom, democracy, and shared prosperity; a flame of hope given to the most desperate people on Earth, guaranteeing that everyone is treated with dignity, and gives hate no safe harbor.

America is strong because of our diversity, not in spite of it. Immigrants are essential to our culture and critical to our economic prosperity; they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, not as political pawns. We must:

  • Secure our border and humanely enforce immigration laws.
  • Ensure legal representation and translators in every court hearing.
  • Defend DACA & DAPA from partisan attacks.
  • Rework J-1, H-1B, H-1B1, and F-1 visas to streamline immigration and make finding jobs easier without employer sponsorship.
  • Ban the practice of family separation at border facilities & close private immigration detention centers.
