As a daughter of immigrant parents, I witnessed firsthand the struggle that immigrants endure to become an American citizen. In Congress, I will push for immigration reform by advocating for administrative fixes to our broken immigration system that will lead to a pathway to citizenship in a just and humane way. Protecting our immigrant communities is essential in Virginia's 8th.

I support:

 1. Creating a pathway to citizenship

  • Make it easier to become a citizen or apply for legal status by removing unnecessary legal, administrative, and financial barriers.

  • Reduce backlogs — we need to modernize our immigration system

  • Provide rights and due process for all immigrants

2. Making DACA permanent and extending further protection for deferral of deportation for their families

  • Federally fund scholarship opportunities for Dreamers

  • Undocumented students cannot legally receive any federally funded student financial aid, including loans, grants, scholarships, or work-study money. I propose that undocumented students be eligible to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).


3. Invest in economic and social development in Central and Latin America (my solution to the role that the U.S. had in creating economic and political instability)

  • Empower immigrant workers

  • Real accountability on employers who break the rules, exploit workers, and don’t adhere to basic labor standards

  • Give undocumented taxpayers access to the government programs they are funding

4. Reinstate EIN #s for permanent residents to allow for job opportunities while going through citizenship

  • H1B Lottery System needs to be expanded and reformed

    • Working in the tech field, I saw many of my colleagues, friends, and acquaintances deported. They invested their education and knowledge back into their home country rather than keeping the knowledge here.
