I have been horrified by our country’s current treatment of immigrants. The Trump administration has banned immigrants from certain countries, severely decreased the numbers of people allowed visas, closed our doors to refugees, spent billions on ineffective walls at the borders and imprisoned thousands, including families and children.
Granted, our immigration system has been broken for some time due to the lack of congressional cooperation in making a clear and humane policy. However, there is hope!
Elizabeth Warren has a coherent plan for immigration reform that reflects the values that I believe in. She will decriminalize migration and refocus enforcement on serious criminal activity.
She plans to get rid of for-profit detention centers, end unnecessary detention, maintain DACA protections and provide due process to those seeking asylum. She recognizes the value of immigrants to our country and would expand legal immigration consistent with our values.
I support Elizabeth Warren for president because she has sensible, well-thought-out plans for this and other issues.
She came from a working class family and knows how life is for those of us who have to work for a living. All of her life she has been, and continues to be, passionate about making our government work for us, not the wealthy elite.
I encourage you to join me in support of Elizabeth Warren for president.
