We are a nation of immigrants.  Bob is the grandson of immigrants, and has always viewed America as a safe haven for innocent families escaping genocide and persecution. While we must stop potentially dangerous people at the border, Bob believes we should not waste time and resources separating families, raiding homes and businesses, deporting DREAMERS, and putting innocent lives at risk. Bob will work to protect the moral fabric of our state and our nation. Back in 2019, Bob joined with 150 lawyers at O’Hare airport in response to the first Trump travel ban. Bob continues to fight against racist and xenophobic efforts to block immigrants from coming to Illinois or America.
