Candidate Notes

America’s immigration system is broken and must be fixed through comprehensive immigration reform. Our system must be fair and compassionate, while still respecting a legal and orderly process. While an advocate for a more holistic approach to immigration reform, I am a co-sponsor of the federal DREAM Act and a supporter of the Maryland ballot initiative.

I support President’s Obama initiatives to streamline the legal immigration system in order to reduce the backlog of those who are waiting in line legally. Eligible individuals should not have to wait years to obtain a visa or green card.
