Immigration

One of the reasons Mike Johnston entered politics was to fight for immigrant communities. As a high school principal, Mike worked to help his students get into four-year colleges, but many couldn’t afford to go because they were denied in­-state tuition due to their undocumented status. That’s why he fought to pass the ASSET Act to extend in­-state tuition to undocumented students, and it’s what drives him today to address the other failures in the nation’s current immigration system.

Mike’s priorities include:

  • Providing a navigable path to citizenship.
  • Providing opportunities to law abiding undocumented immigrants, including in­-state tuition and access to Medicaid.
  • Denying Trump his useless wall and relying on 21st Century technology to address real security threats.
  • Reforming ICE, including eliminating the scourge of for-­profit companies from our immigration enforcement system.
  • Building an immigration system that honors our values and serves the economy by reuniting families and increasing access to visas for those who want to contribute to their communities.
  • Embracing those who are fleeing violence, and using existing foreign aid to countries battling violence.
