Our country is made up of immigrants who made the journey to the United States in search of the American dream. But we all know that our immigration system is broken.

I am a strong supporter of comprehensive immigration reform, including beefed up efforts to improve border security to keep criminals out and a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in this country who pay a fine, pay back taxes, learn to speak English and stand in line.

Comprehensive immigration reform will not only make our country safer, it will also make our economy stronger.
