Our nation is stronger for all of us, because of the hard work and unbridled dreams immigrants bring. Updating our immigration system is essential to making the process more fair and efficient. We must do this while also ensuring our students are free from harm.

Public schools form the foundation for opportunity in America, and educators are committed to ensuring all students feel safe and have the same chances for success.

Every student should go to school to learn, to engage with their teachers and classmates, and know they will be safe. I support local efforts to protect the public education of all students regardless of their or their parent’s actual or perceived national origin, citizenship, or immigration status.
