Implementing a Humane Immigration Agenda

Immigration is a deeply personal issue to me. I am able to have the life I have and step forward as a candidate for U.S. Congress because my family managed to escape Poland before the Holocaust and immigrate to this country. I am horrified and outraged by President Trump’s campaign of lies and relentless racial, ethnic, and religious hatred against immigrants, threatening people and tearing apart families who have contributed to our nation for years and demonizing those whose only “crime” is to believe that America means a better future for themselves and their children.

Separating families and putting children in cages not only undercuts our values but also doesn’t make us any safer. I will fight to protect immigrants and American values and support long-overdue immigration reform that protects our DREAMERs, provides a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, and redeploys our resources to focus on real cross-border dangers such as human trafficking, weapons smuggling, and the illicit importation of drugs.
