Issue Position: Immigration Reform

Issue Position

Date: Jan. 1, 2016

Joe Garcia is a leader on immigration reform. He was the lead sponsor of the only bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill in Congress in the last 4 years, and as Congressman worked hard to stop deportations that broke up families in South Florida.

More than 50% of our small businesses in South Florida are owned by immigrants. Passing comprehensive immigration reform means more people can start small businesses and grow our economy. When anti-immigrant Republicans blocked his bill, Joe worked closely with President Obama on Executive Actions to implement elements of his bill that would protect families from cruel deportations. In Congress, Joe will work to make the President's actions permanent.
