An immigration system rooted in fairness and decency:

We can have secure borders and at the same time be a welcoming, decent nation that lives up to our historical legacy as a nation of immigrants.

The immigration debate cuts to the heart of who we are as a nation. The Trump Administration’s senseless policies that dehumanize migrants—from separating migrant children from their parents, to attempting to significantly limit legal grants of asylum—have created an artificial and manufactured humanitarian disaster at our border. Simply put, this Administration’s actions—aided and abetted by Cory Gardner’s inaction—are based on cruelty, are designed to foster division and bigotry within our country, and do not reflect our American values. The damage they have caused must be addressed immediately.

Merely solving this immediate crisis, while crucial, is not enough. We also need comprehensive immigration reform to replace our fundamentally broken immigration laws with a fair and just system that treats immigrants with decency and respect, consistent with who we are as a nation.

John firmly believes that we can have secure borders and at the same time be a welcoming, decent nation that lives up to our historical legacy as a nation of immigrants.



John’s priorities to ensure that our country has an immigration system rooted in fairness and decency include:

A fluent Spanish-speaker from his days as an exchange student to Mexico in middle-school, John has been on the front lines fighting Trump and Gardner’s inhumane and irrational immigration policies. John led a group of attorneys at his former law firm that represented many immigrants held in the migrant detention facility in Aurora, Colorado who had been separated from children at the border. For that effort, he and his firm won the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Network’s Pro Bono Service Award for 2018.

As Colorado’s next Senator, John will continue his leadership in this area and prioritize the urgent humanitarian crisis at the border as well as a long-overdue, meaningful overhaul of our legal immigration system.
