America must remain the land of opportunity for all, including immigrants who continue to add value to our nation. The U.S. government must provide more legal immigration options so there is no need to choose illegal migration.
We must reimagine immigration and fix our broken refugee asylum, immigration, and work visaprocesses. I call for the creation of a National Border Commission that engages border communities, academics, and national security experts to recommend long-term, humane border solutions. Mexico and the South American countries must be part of any strategy. I support pathways for migrants to earn income and pay taxes while awaiting their asylum hearings.
