The previous administration launched an all-out war against immigrants and refugees. From religious discrimination against Muslims to denying claims of asylum to those fleeing gang violence and domestic abuse, to separating and incarcerating children and families seeking refuge in our country, our treatment of migrants isn’t just inhumane; it’s illegal.
If we want to end illegal immigration, we should make legal immigration easier, not harder. We need to reform our immigration laws to expedite the process of getting a green card or applying for citizenship. Migrants are an important part of our history, our culture, our economy, and our community, and expanding legal immigration is the best way to guarantee their safety and yours.
