IMMIGRATION

I am proud to be the son of immigrants. Growing up in their home, and within my heavily immigrant neighborhood, has given me an intimate understanding of this community. The majority of New Yorkers were not born in New York; in a nation of immigrants, our city should be the gold standard for immigrant acceptance. I will continue that fight and support my federal partners in government as they work to finally pass a progressive, humane, and comprehensive immigration reform bill that provides a pathway to citizenship and full self-determination.
