Congressman Garamendi supports a comprehensive and bipartisan approach to modernizing our nation’s broken and antiquated immigration system.

Garamendi also supports commonsense border security provisions that prevent violent criminals and individuals that seek to wreak havoc from entering our country. He also believes that a comprehensive solution much provide a long-term, reliable workforce for California’s agricultural economy.
Garamendi supported a commonsense, bipartisan immigration reform bill that was passed by the U.S. Senate in 2013. Sadly, House leadership refused to bring the bill to the floor and wouldn’t even allow a hearing on the legislation. Today, Garamendi is working with his colleagues in the House to force a vote on bipartisan immigration reform that enhances border security and provides a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers.
