Our country needs comprehensive immigration reform that protects our borders while valuing human life and dignity.
Trump’s immigration policies are immoral and un-American, separating thousands of children from their parents. Moreover, they are ineffective, as arrivals are increasing and asylum backlogs are growing. As Governor, Hickenlooper fought Trump’s immigration policies, signed historic legislation granting tuition assistance to undocumented students, and initiated a new program to grant driver licenses to undocumented immigrants.
As President, Hickenlooper will lead efforts to protect the Dreamers and enact comprehensive immigration reform. These reforms will create a pathway to legalization for unauthorized immigrants while also ensuring border security. Hickenlooper will also reverse the Trump Administration’s efforts to prevent refugees from receiving asylum in the US. His plan will also call for hiring more immigration judges and support staff, to reduce a backlog that can leave immigrants waiting for years, and protect them from judicial interference, so they can do their jobs without being subject to political whims. Finally, Hickenlooper will launch a regional strategy to improve the conditions in the Northern Triangle Countries (Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador), addressing this crisis at its source.
