Immigration, A Workable Immigration Policy

The borders of the US represent its sovereignty and hence need to prevent both illegal immigration as well as terrorists. America needs a sensible and practical immigration policy that secures our borders but also provides for more opportunities for legal immigration of qualified individuals. I support a path to legal status for the 11 million illegal immigrants who are already in this country, provided that they have no criminal record. We need to create a guest-worker program, with the appropriate eVerify and security checks, which allows seasonal migrant workers to temporarily enter and work in the US. A significant portion of the farming industry and some non-farming ones such as meat packing depend on this migrant workforce.

    As an immigrant myself, I was proud of the State of Maryland for being one of the first states to approve the Dream Act, which provides in-state tuition breaks for undocumented immigrants. The State of Maryland also passed a law that allowed illegal immigrants to obtain drivers’ licenses. As your State Delegate, I will make sure that the immigrant populations no longer live in fear of deportation

    We are a nation of Immigrants. Immigrants are a better part of the US economy And I strongly support a generous Immigration reform for our American Family. It has been long overdue, and Immigrants deserve a better immigration reform.

    We do NOT need a wall we simply need to enforce our current laws. Illegals are illegal & those here legally should follow the laws ( almost all do ) of the land. I am 100% against the hiring of illegal workers that will lower our wages and standard of living and believe business and company owners must be held accountable if these laws are broken.
