As the daughter of an immigrant, Marilyn understands the challenges experienced by our immigrant population. She supports comprehensive immigration reform that focuses on streamlining the process of legal permanent residency, creating a fair pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in this country, and protections for DREAMERs. Marilyn will fight to shut down the for-profit detention facilities that lock up children and will fight the cruel policy of separating migrant families.
Marilyn will also work to expand visa caps – immigrants are an essential part of the American identity and the U.S. economy as workers and entrepreneurs who bring skills, diverse perspectives, and innovation. By raising caps on visas, we can help attract the brightest and the best the world has to offer to the United States.
