Immigration and Visas

Shelley believes fervently that America is truly a nation of immigrants and has a strong history of legal immigration. The freedoms and liberties enjoyed by citizens of the United States are unique and continue to draw the hopes and dreams of those from around the world. To protect those freedoms, she also believes it is important to support those seeking to become legal citizens of the United States.
