Val’s Priorities

Immigration

Fixing a broken system.

More than almost any other issue, our immigration system is an example of how the dysfunction in Washington has failed our country, and we need Congress to act to secure our border, while providing certainty for DREAMers and a fair pathway to citizenship for those willing to do the work to earn citizenship. Val supports comprehensive immigration reform that addresses the problems within our immigration system, which must include securing our border with smart border management, including more resources for security and a way for migrants to apply for asylum from their home country. To curb the influx of migration, Val believes the U.S. has a role to play in helping countries address the root cause of migration from those countries. And for those here now, Val supports a fair pathway to citizenship for anyone who is willing to work for it and meet certain requirements, including background checks.
