Statement of Position on
the Undocumented

Nevada is home to many undocumented individuals who contribute to our communities and economy. As a U.S. Senate candidate, I am committed to advocating for a compassionate and pragmatic approach to address the needs of undocumented residents while recognizing the broader issues of immigration reform. Our statement of position outlines our vision for a more inclusive and just Nevada. We will work tirelessly to ensure that Nevada is a welcoming and inclusive state and that policies reflect our shared values of justice, compassion, and opportunity.
