Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free …I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Emma Lazarus, Words from the Statue of Liberty

Donald Trump and the Trump Republicans believe in building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. They believe we should deport all people residing in the country who may have entered improperly and deport them, house by house; family by family.

Donald Trump and the Trump Republicans believe that we should ban all Muslims from entering the country and investigate those already living here.

Democrats believe, as written on the Statue of Liberty, that we are a nation of immigrants. Hillary Clinton and the Democrats believe in instituting comprehensive immigration reform. We believe that we should treat everyone fairly and advocate for President Obama’s executive actions that protected families and individuals from unnecessary and unwarranted deportations.

Democrats believe in our nations’ Constitution and oppose any religious test to enter our country. We believe we are strong exactly because of our diversity.
