I spoke with a voter recently who was in tears. Her grandparents survived the Holocaust, and their desperate quest for safety led to her life in the United States. She is well acquainted with first-hand accounts of that terrible era in human history. Reflecting on news of tragic abuses by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement on our borders, she told me "I never thought I'd live in a country where these things happen."
We cannot and will not look away.
I will fight for humane, rational and constructive Immigration policies. We are, after all, a nation of immigrants and I haven’t forgotten that.
