All human life should be lived in accordance with the principles established by God for the life of people and of nations. This is a basic emphasis in my Presbyterian heritage of faith. I thank you for your service to my community and the nation as a whole. As a resident of your district, I want to ask you to help make this community and nation welcoming and safe for new immigrants by supporting Comprehensive Immigration Reform that includes:
*Opportunities for hard-working immigrants to regularize their status, pursue an option to become permanent residents;
*Reform in our family-based immigration system to significantly reduce waiting times for separated families;
*Creation of legal avenues for workers and their families who wish to migrate to the U.S.
*Humanitarian border protection policies
