Today, 2020 Presidential candidate and former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro, took to social media to announce what he’s calling a “People First” immigration plan.

On his Instagram and twitter accounts, Castro argued that “our nation has lost sight of the most important component of our immigration system – people.” With his plan, Castro explains that his immigration policy will “create a more just, more compassionate immigration system.”

He declared that he will “effectively end immigration detention,” he will “reconstitute immigration and Customs enforcement (ICE),” he will provide a “pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants,” he will “return to classifying undocumented migration as a civil offense, not a criminal one,” he will “strengthen family reunification,” and he will “establish a 21stCentury ‘Marshall Plan’ for Central America.”
