I am fed up with (and frankly disgusted by) this administration’s practice of separating families and putting children in cages. We have watched the Trump administration dehumanize immigrants and spend money and shut down our government to fund an ineffective wall. This is not who we are. We need to return to who we are, and honor the plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty. I am fired up to:
● Fight for comprehensive and compassionate immigration policy.
● Reinstate and protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA / Dreamers) program.
● Defund Trump’s wall. This vanity project will not strengthen our borders, puts wildlife at risk, and takes money away important federal programs that need funding, like public education and healthcare.
● Make our country accessible for those who want to build a future in America, including increasing labor visas and expanding our asylum program to include those seeking environmental asylum from the effects of climate change.
