IMMIGRATION REFORM

Brad believes immigration reform is crucial to the future of New York’s economy and its international competitiveness. Research has documented the extent to which immigrants foster innovation and serve as the backbone to numerous sectors in the workforce. While most immigration policy is handled at the federal level, Brad is supportive of measures that can be taken at the state level as well.

SUPPORTS the DREAM Act, which would provide assistance to the more than 3,500 undocumented students who graduate from New York high schools annually and who encounter tremendous obstacles on the road to obtaining a college degree.

SUPPORTS joining other progressive elected officials nationwide in calling for broad federal immigration reform, including a real path to citizenship, fair labor rights and an emphasis on reuniting families – all while upholding America’s national security and the rule of law.
