The executive order to stop deporting young people who were brought here through no fault of their own is very important to me. Congress should stop playing politics and recognize that everyone has an interest in immigration reform. Everyone wants a reliable system that allows people who play by the rules to become productive members of society. I will work together with members of Congress to ensure that we are taking steps to build a system secure borders and a reliable labor pool, particularly here where agriculture is critical. Congress should stand up and pass the DREAM Act immediately.
I believe that no one should be discriminated against on the basis of who they love or their gender, religion, or race. I support the equal rights of gay and lesbian couples to marry who they love. We need to move our policies towards those which advocate fairness and equality for all.
