Immigrants’ Rights

My biological family are Cambodian refugees who fled the devastation and genocide committed by the Khmer Rouge. They came to America because, like many other immigrants and refugees, it is the land of opportunity where they could raise and provide for their families far from the fear of war, famine, hunger, and persecution.

But it is also a matter of collective responsibility. US foreign policy for the last century has created great upheaval and instability in countries and regions all over the world - whether it be Southeast Asia, Central America, or the Middle East.

I truly believe that it is the right thing to do and the responsible thing to do to allow immigrants, asylum seekers, and refugees to pursue their lawful claims for residency and citizenship in a fair, compassionate, and timely fashion.
