Immigration

California Democrats support comprehensive immigration reform that is consistent with American values of freedom, opportunity, compassion, and respect for human rights. In that regard we are leading the nation with the California Dream Act: Students brought here as children can qualify for financial aid for college.

We allow undocumented drivers to get drivers' licenses; it keeps the streets safer. We provide health coverage for permanent residents and legal assistance for children fleeing violence in Central America. We have established a network of sanctuary cities, including Los Angeles (in practice if not in name). PaliDems won’t let families and communities be torn apart.
