Immigration

America is a nation of immigrants, and we pride ourselves on welcoming individuals and families from all over the world. Nashville is lucky to have one of the greatest immigrant communities in the nation. In 2014 I asked President Obama to visit Nashville’s Casa Azafrán. The President noted the promise of Nashville’s growing immigration population and our welcoming community.

LGBTQ+ Rights

I believe love is love and everyone deserves equal protection under the law. I cosponsored and voted for the Equality Act and support the Student Nondiscrimination Act. I was one of the first members of Congress to oppose the ban on transgender service members.
