Homeland Security and Immigration

 

Homeland Security and Immigration

Congressman Allred will take a pragmatic approach to reforming our broken immigration system. He is fighting to ensure we secure our border, and our ports of entry using 21st century technology to tackle the complicated problems we face. Congressman Allred is working toward ending the piecemeal approach and passing comprehensive reform that would create a path to citizenship for longtime residents who have paid their taxes and obeyed our laws. He believes strongly that people who were brought here as children and are covered by DACA should be protected.

 

Gun Violence Prevention

There is so much we agree on as a nation to address gun violence. Too many lives have been taken from us and Congress must act. Congressman Allred supports keeping our neighborhoods and schools safe with common-sense gun safety measures such as universal, instant background checks, keeping weapons of war out of local communities and closing loopholes to keep guns out of the hands of violent criminals and domestic abusers.
