Immigration reform is at the forefront of the 2020 Presidential election, and Democrats are working diligently to present a plan that constituents can endorse.
Julian Castro, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, has been driving his message since announcing his Presidential run, expressing that the right move to an effective and efficient immigration plan is to not only reform the immigration system but to also create a humane border policy and also establish a 21st century “Marshall Plan” for Central America.
In a tweet, Castro slammed President Trump for promoting “the lie that immigrants present a threat to national security.” He explained that “this lie has allowed Trump & others to demonize and attack immigrants for political gain.” And, he assured that his “’People First’ immigration plan would overhaul enforcement in this country.”
Our immigration enforcement system is built around the lie that immigrants present a threat to national security. This lie has allowed Trump & others to demonize and attack immigrants for political gain. My #PeopleFirst immigration plan would overhaul enforcement in this country. https://t.co/2IN5nfYYJs
