I will fight to stop family separation and work to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) established by George W. Bush in 2002 and return to a more humane immigration and naturalization service. I will fulfill our nation's promise and uphold Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and create a path to citizenship for everyone that calls our country home.
Temporary Protected Status for Somalia has been extended but we need a permanent solution. Somali individuals in our community who came to the country legally deserve protection from deportation. In Congress, I will work with the federal government and the Somali community to find a long-term resolution to help our Somali neighbors stay in this country.
Enough is enough - it is time to abolish ICE.
