California has an opportunity to emerge as a national leader on immigration, help contribute up to $27.5 billion dollars to the state's economy, and lift over 40,000 children out of poverty through One California. One California is a $20 million proposal that helps provide education, outreach, and support to immigrants in CA who are eligible for citizenship or relief from deportation.
Our country is facing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Thousands of starving and traumatized children have fled to our borders seeking refuge from Central American countries devastated by extreme drug and gang violence. And now Congress is trying to pass a bill that would fast track the deportation of these innocent children. We must have the courage to protect them.
Our immigration system is broken. It's forcing our friends and neighbors to live in the shadows, reducing economic growth, and making the American Dream a criminal offense. Rather than rely on votes from House members in Mississippi or Iowa, California's 15 Republican members of Congress must get on board, especially since 90% of Californians support a path to citizenship.
Thanks to thousands of Courage Campaign members who signed on to support #Health4All, Governor Brown just agreed to provide healthcare to undocumented children. While we should hold our heads high from this historic win, we must keep fighting to help provide healthcare to hardworking, undocumented adults who still lack access to affordable healthcare.Read More
