Rejects governments heartless immigration tactics

Deedra is committed to continue her work to defend attacks from the federal government to lock up, break up and ban immigrant families. She strongly believes that Arizona's values of compassion and justice can lead the country to commonsense immigration reform. A legal means must be provided to recognize people brought to this country as children are not criminals and see themselves as Americans. We should develop a pathway to legal status, at a˙minimum for those without criminal convictions.

Protect immigrants through commonsense government reform

Our state has been on the front lines of the fight to protect American immigrant families. With years of working in civil rights defense, Deedra is committed to continue her work to defend attacks from the federal government to lock up, break up and ban immigrant families. She strongly believes that Arizona's values of compassion and justice can lead the country to commonsense immigration reform.

Arizona's history is rich with contributions from generations of immigrants who have long made Arizona their home. A legal means must be provided to recognize people brought to this country as children are not criminals and see themselves as Americans. We should develop a pathway to legal status, at a minimum for those without criminal convictions, so people living in our state are no longer hiding in the shadows.

Banning refugees morally unacceptable

[Asked about Syrian refugees and Russia's involvement in the Syrian war, Abboud said,] "We have a president who wants to ban refugees," Abboud said. "Ban refugees who are experiencing atrocities that, thank God, America has really never experienced. And we never want to experience those. But at the same time, we have a president that is singularly partnershiping with Russia to bomb the very people who are already dying on the ground and we are denying refuge to."
