Immigration Reform

We are primarily a nation of immigrants. The American Dream became real due to hard working immigrants who were able to make a better life for their children. Families come here today with the same dream. 

The current horrendous and tragic policies of child separation and of holding children and adults in inhumane conditions are contrary to our nation’s generous and accepting spirit that is symbolized by the Statue of Liberty. American compassion and empathy made us a beacon for generations. 

Gina will work towards a comprehensive immigration solution. Gina supports the American Dream and Promise Act, recently passed by the House of Representatives. This bill will give a path to citizenship to law-abiding and productive members of our communities, including Dreamers.  

We need increased funding for immigration judges and attorneys so that those seeking asylum can be processed more swiftly.  Most importantly, we need to keep families together. 

Gina supports securing our borders with modern technology. She will fight to keep America safe, the land of opportunity, and a beacon of morality and civility.

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” These words of Emma Lazarus on the Statue of Liberty are the essence of America’s promise.
