Explain your position on U.S. immigration policy.

Lloyd Doggett

35th District


Instead of building walls, build bridges. Immigration reform & supporting our Dreamers will grow Texas economy–more small business startups & more student graduates. US House wrongly denied opportunity to vote on bipartisan comprehensive reform of our broken system approved years ago by Senate. Tearing families asunder, jailing children, is cruel & will not work. Need path to citizenship for those who play by rules, paying a fine, any back taxes, & criminal background check. America must remain a beacon of hope for refugees fleeing violence & oppression, while safeguarding American families.
