Georgia’s children are growing up in an era where the Republican candidates for Governor tell them they have more to fear from their neighbors than from a candidate driving around the state in a “Deportation Bus.” It is time to end this hate-filled rhetoric from politicians who are doing nothing more than inflaming divisions in our nation—especially in a moment when we need leaders who will bring us together. Leviticus 19:34 says, “The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”
Families belong together. One of Sarah’s first acts as Senator would be to reunite the families separated by this administration through their callous and destructive policies towards refugees asylum-seekers. We must shut down the detention centers where thousands of children, even newborns, have been separated from their parents and left to sleep on cold floors.
Sarah supports policies that comply with international law with respect to asylum-seekers and refugees. And she will prioritize America’s commitment to human rights and the dignity of every individual in our immigration policies.
We have a broken immigration system that has been made only worse by this administration. Sarah supports protecting DREAMers from deportation. She also believes that strong border security has to be accompanied by comprehensive immigration reform.
Sarah is the proud wife of a naturalized American citizen. She knows our immigrant communities have been a vibrant part of our nation — and our economy — for centuries. As a Senate, she will be a champion for fixing America’s broken immigration system.
