Drew's ancestors left Ireland to make better lives for their families and pursue the American Dream. The American Dream is alive and well for those who pursue it, natural born citizens and immigrants alike.
Immigrants have always been and continue to be critical for our nation's success so it is vital that we work together to reform our broken immigration system. We need to:
- protect legal immigration to encourage the world's brightest, most creative and innovative, and hardest working people to make America their new home;
- ensure that Americans who are willing and able, including those needing additional education and training, to do a job are given preference in the hiring process;
- resolve the issue of illegal immigrants in a fair, ethical, and practical manner so everyone wins; and
- provide a path to citizenship for law-abiding children of illegal immigrants who were brought to this country as minors.
