Position Papers
Immigration Reform
If immigration is a problem today, it is because the federal government has failed to enforce existing immigration laws. Unfettered and unregulated immigration has created gross inequities and has hampered local and state governments' ability to serve existing and new populations.

Changes in immigration law and policy must be implemented in ways that are both fair to new Americans and equitable to all Americans.

Congress Roadblocks Children's' Health Care Programs
There is a long list of grievances that the constituents of the 16th Congressional District have about Congress. Among them is the failure and/or refusal to support and protect the health of the children of our District.
Public schools, and other community institutions, must be considered essential to the future of our nation. The NEA survey above raises many pertinent and pressing issues. In the hope that every child may attend a great public school, I believe the following priorities must be met.
