Joe Sestak on Immigration

Democratic Senate Challenger; former Navy Admiral

 


Expand involvement of the Office of Refugee Resettlement

We need to expand the involvement of the Office of Refugee Resettlement to better match migrants with host families in the United States, as many U.S. families are willing to open their homes to such people in need. We are a caring country. Finally, we need immigration reform. I will engage on this immediately, similar to what I supported in past bi-partisan efforts by Senators McCain and Kennedy, to get our undocumented residents on a path to citizenship with border security measures, as appropriate.

Broken system can only be fixed by comprehensive reform

Our immigrant heritage is a rich seam in our country's history and adds much promise to our collective future. So many immigrants arrived in this country with nothing, and yet, through hard work and perseverance, saw their children become doctors, artists, welders, teachers, engineers--and even three-star admirals. No one doubts that our current immigration system is broken. But it will not be fixed by breaking it even further. It can only be fixed through comprehensive reform.
