Valadao Urges Trump to ‘Repair Broken Immigration System’

On Tuesday, Congressman David Valadao (R-Hanford) issued a letter to President Trump urging the president to work with him and other key members of Congress to fix our nation’s broken immigration system. The son of Portuguese immigrants who represents a large agricultural district, Valadao is personally connected to the issue.

An excerpt from his letter reads, “Like you, I firmly believe securing our borders is an issue fundamental to our national security. However, as we begin to address the issue of immigration reform, it is important to modernize and streamline our current legal immigration system, and create a process by which the eleven million undocumented immigrants currently living in our country, who have otherwise followed the law, can earn legal status and continue contributing to our economy and society.”

Valadao has been a consistent and vocal leader who has advocated for agricultural immigration reform.
