As the border crisis worsens, the 1 million new illegal immigrants that came into the U.S. during President Biden’s first year in office will cost taxpayers $9.4 billion. We need to secure our southern border and enforce our laws.

Obviously a lot has been weighing on all of our minds. The whole fear of ‘the other’ in the eyes of fascism, what’s happening at the border, all of that is so outrageous and I think the last few years has been such a mind boggling like nightmare in so many ways. When I think about this project, it makes me want to speak out and do whatever I can and the way to do that right now is to vote.

On her Instagram, after the ICE arrested hundreds in Mississippi raids targeting immigrant workers

Kids should be worried about losing teeth. Kids should be worried about going into the next grade at school. Kids should be worried about conquering the monkey bars. Kids should NOT have to worry about when they will see their families again. Kids should NOT have to worry about coming home to an empty home. Kids should NOT have to worry about the discriminatory practices and policies that mean that their families will never be at home in the world. What happened in Mississippi should not be normalized/ It should be a catalyst for action.

Above all else, immigration is about people. Living in and representing El Paso has allowed me to see the incredible contributions that immigrants make to our communities every single day and I want to share a few of their stories with you: Carlos is an immigration attorney. This picture was taken the day he became a US citizen, which he told me was the best day of his life. It took him 18 years to become a citizen because of our outdated and broken system. We need to fix that. Our plan does.

Being multicultural is something that I’ve always been proud of, but realizing that the same culture that I’m so proud of is the same culture that was banned by this administration is something that is always to be grappled with.

Taking ownership of and reversing the horrific policy of separating parents from children is a necessary first step towards fixing a created crisis. But a comprehensive humane immigration policy can not exist when a fascist demagogue refers to immigrants as murderers and rapists

John and I are outraged to see and hear the horror stories of immigrant families seeking asylum and refuge in America being ripped apart due to the inhumane policies of the Trump administration. These actions are cruel, anti-family and go against everything we believe this country should represent. The ACLU is committed to defending the rights and humanity of these vulnerable families. In addition to fighting for immigrants’ rights, they’re advocating for reproductive rights, voting rights, criminal justice reform, LGBT rights, 1st amendment rights and holding the Trump administration accountable whenever possible. [...] Each member of our family donated $72,000 to the ACLU.

In a Time Magazine op-ed published in response to Trump’s Muslim ban

We have to be vigilant about letting bigotry and hatred creep into the mainstream or be rationalized under the guise of ‘protecting our people.’ If we accept blanket targeting towards Muslims, we can all be sure that other minority groups won’t be far behind, whether it’s by closing borders to other supposed “dangerous” groups or trampling their human rights in other ways… We shouldn’t be singling out groups and differentiating them by race, class or religion, because according to the Constitution, all of that is irrelevant to their rights as a citizen. Anybody who goes to the U.S. and chooses to raise that flag and uphold those principles is ‘our people.

Let me tell you who it does not serve. It does not serve you the American people. Doesn’t serve you. When politicians talk about immigration reform, they usually mean the following: amnesty, open borders, lower wages. Immigration reform should mean something else entirely. It should mean improvements to our laws and policies to make life better for American citizens.

In an address to the nation

My fellow Americans, tonight, I’d like to talk with you about immigration. For more than 200 years, our tradition of welcoming immigrants from around the world has given us a tremendous advantage over other nations. […] But today, our immigration system is broken — and everybody knows it. […] Now, I continue to believe that the best way to solve this problem is by working together to pass that kind of common sense law. But until that happens, there are actions I have the legal authority to take as President. Tonight, I am announcing those actions. First, we’ll build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel so that they can stem the flow of illegal crossings, and speed the return of those who do cross over. Second, I’ll make it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates, and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, as so many business leaders have proposed. Third, we’ll take steps to deal responsibly with the millions of undocumented immigrants who already live in our country.
