Rocky De La Fuente on Immigration

 

 


Treat undocumented workers as assets rather than liabilities

We need comprehensive immigration reform that views undocumented workers as assets rather than liabilities. It is not logical to suggest that we can deport 13 million immigrants in a way that would be deemed fair. We can secure our borders without abandoning the values upon which our nation was built. We need to de-politicize the issue and work toward effective and comprehensive immigration reform.

We have a rich history of embracing immigrants

Florida has a rich history of embracing immigrants. Our state's demographics reflect a strong Latino influence that has grown over the years. I myself am a proud first generation American who loves this country for the opportunities it has provided for me. Immigration is the issue that drew me into the presidential race, and it remains a major interest of mine as it relates to Florida.

Secure our broken borders without abandoning our values

Q: Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?

A: No. We need comprehensive immigration reform that recognizes undocumented workers to be assets rather than liabilities. It isn't logical to suggest that we can deport 13 million immigrants any more than it's logical to suggest that we cannot deport the small percentage who have committed felonies. We can secure our borders without abandoning the values upon which our nation was built. The first step is to admit that our current system of immigration is broken. Then, we must create a more intelligent, effective and efficient way of welcoming immigrants to our borders and providing them with a clear path to citizenship.
