Gina Raimondo on Immigration

 

 


COVID: Get tested; no immigration officials at testing sites

[On COVID]: "I want to speak directly to Rhode Island's immigrant community. We want you to be safe and we want you to come forward, get tested and get healthcare," said Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo during her daily press briefing. "None of the information that we take from you will ever get into the hands of an immigration authority. There are no immigration officials at any of these testing sites, even though they look official and there are people in uniforms."

Driver's licenses for DREAMers, pathway for citizenship

Raimondo signed legislation giving all children of illegal immigrants the right to obtain driver's licenses once they've reached 16 years old. Her stance on the licenses, she said, is evocative of a broader willingness to take a stand against the Trump administration's immigration policymaking that she says is immoral and inhumane. Raimondo said the government must provide a pathway to citizenship for people whose parents brought them into the country when they were children.

Opposes deporting DREAMers

When politicians in Washington took aim at our Dreamers we stood with them because in Rhode Island we don't just tolerate diversity; we celebrate it.

Help settle Syrian refugees

Gov. Gina Raimondo said in September she's willing to help if the federal government asks Rhode Island to host Syrian refugees. Raimondo's spokeswoman says the governor would coordinate closely with the White House and law enforcement if the state receives a request now.
