Throughout America's history, our nation's values and founding principles have been a beacon of hope for millions of immigrants striving to live in freedom. Ed’s ancestors, like most Americans, were immigrants who came to America seeking a better life. To this day, those same principles continue to draw people to our country.
Ed opposes the dangerous rhetoric on immigration coming out of this Administration. There is bipartisan support among the American people and in Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. The time is now to move forward to fix the system, create American jobs, lower our deficit, strengthen our borders and give millions of undocumented Americans an earned pathway to citizenship. Ed has pushed for comprehensive immigration reform since his first day in office. He also supports the DREAM Act for young people who came to the country through no fault of their own and are Americans in every way except legal status.
