Dr. Neddy Astudillo on Immigration

Dr. Neddy Astudillo - Janesville, Wisconsin

Dr. Neddy Astudillo reminds us that immigrants are not strangers among us, but valuable, loving, and hardworking members of our communities, and families- our friends, colleagues, neighbors, and relatives.

She also warns how keeping a sector of our community "underserved, unappreciated, undocumented, uninsured, underpaid, and vulnerable to changing laws that profile [them]" is dangerous to our community and impacts everyone's lives and safety by promoting fear, injustice, and discrimination.

Dr. Astudillo calls for Immigration Reform as a "debt we have to our neighbors"- as immigrants are essential members of our communities and economies.
