    We are a nation of immigrants. My ancestors were immigrants forced into America as slaves. Today's immigrants came here to improve the lives of their families and should be given the opportunity to do so as long as its done properly according to the laws. No family deserves to be broken up and divided, lets help them not deport them.

    Within 90 days of becoming your next Senator, I will introduce a Bill for Comprehensive Immigration reform. However, we must identify all criminals and deport them ASAP. Additionally, we must enforce current laws and fine employers $500-$1000 1st. offense per employee. Those that have been in the United States over 5 years with clean records and paying taxes should receive work permits.

    Except for Native Americans, the United States is a country of immigrants. Immigration is another issue, like church and state, which must be constantly debated and clarified because there is no easy answer. Consequently, we must welcome, embrace and take pride in the challenges that come with having the Statue of Liberty.

    I strongly support a path to citizenship and a way to help "dreamers" in our community. This is largely out of the realm and scope of the City-County Council, however.
