With legal pathways for immigration blocked, effective border security under-resourced, and root causes of mass migration long ignored, our country’s immigration system is broken. During my time in Congress, I am proud to have secured resources for smart border security, funding for local non-profits supporting asylum-seeking families lawfully released in the United States, and investments to increase economic opportunities and improve the infrastructure of our land ports of entry. 

In the Safer Communities Act, I also passed a provision making it illegal to traffic firearms across the border, reducing the flow of firearms that have been fueling violence in the Northern Triangle and causing migration north. But there is still much, much more work to do – including for border security and a pathway to citizenship for DREAMERS – and I will continue working to deliver it.
