The U.S. has a proud tradition of opening its doors to immigrants from across the world, who in turn have made immeasurable contributions to our country. We must continue to welcome immigrants, while at the same time reforming our broken immigration system by securing our borders and providing a path to citizenship for the immigrants who strengthen our communities. Congress also must act to protect TPS recipients, and the thousands of Nevada DREAMers who have lived, worked, and studied in the United States since they were children. I will continue to oppose the cruel practice of separating families at the border.

For too long, politicians in Washington have used the issue of immigration as a wedge to divide people and score political points, instead of doing the hard work of fixing the system. While I do not support the abolishment of ICE, which protects communities as a part of the Department of Homeland Security, I believe ICE, like any other federal agency, should be held to a high standard of accountability, and Congress should remain vigilant in its oversight of the federal government. In Congress, I will work to hold our government accountable, make comprehensive immigration reform a top priority, and won’t play partisan games with people’s lives.
