As one of two Latinas serving in the Texas Senate, Senator Garcia feels strongly that our current immigration system needs drastic reform.
Senator Garcia appreciates the important contributions of immigrants throughout the history of both our nation and our state. She believes we must embrace our state’s diversity and respect all persons, regardless of origin. Undocumented workers that come to the United States, often to escape deplorable conditions in their home countries, should be given the ability to become law-abiding, productive members of our society.
We must simplify the current procedures to become a legal resident which lead to years of red tape and gridlock. We are splitting-up families and sending back hard-working people when what we need to do is to continue the American tradition of embracing the talents and intelligence that immigrants have always brought to this country.
