Comprehensive immigration reform and passage of the Dream Act is essential for the safety and prosperity of our friends, families and neighbors. I’ve seen firsthand the fear, pain and injustice that the lack of a path to citizenship has wrought in our communities. As a nonprofit leader, I helped fund my students’ legal defense to fight their families’ deportation and I have assisted families in navigating the citizenship process. As an educator, I know that we cannot look children in the eye and tell them to invest in their education and to pursue the American Dream, without providing a pathway to citizenship. In Congress, protecting my DACA students, passing the Dream Act and fighting for comprehensive immigration reform will be my utmost priority.
