Immigration

Congressman Horsford is fighting for comprehensive immigration reform that protects our national security while bringing families together rather than tearing them apart. 

Congressman Horsford is an original co-sponsor of the Dream and Promise Act of 2019, a landmark bill that will create a path to citizenship for dreamers and protect Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) recipients from being forced to leave the country they love.

In January 2019, Congressman Horsford presided over the House of Representatives’ vote to provide $1.6 billion in funding for smart, effective, border security. 
 
In February 2019, Congressman Horsford voted in favor of nearly $1 billion in funding to prevent the flow of illegal drugs across the U.S. border. That funding included:
$564 million to install non-intrusive inspection equipment at ports of entry
$113 million for additional air and marine assets
$100 million for new border security technology
$77 million for opioid detection equipment; and $59 million for 600 new Customs officers.   
 
During his previous term in the House, Congressman Horsford was an original co-sponsor of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act - a bipartisan, comprehensive reform bill that would have provided a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and strengthened border security.
