As an immigrant, I fully recognize that our country must continue to be a beacon of hope and opportunity for people around the world. However, I believe that individuals who want to come into our country must do so through legal means. It is clear that our immigration system is broken and in dire need of reform.
Any path towards immigration reform should ensure that our border and America’s other points of entry are secure, and Customs and Border Patrol has the latest technology so they can effectively do their job. DACA recipients must also be treated fairly and with compassion and reforms must uphold American values and the rule of law.
