Polis has been a leader on putting a stop to discrimination in all it’s forms and fixing our broken immigration system. In October 2013, he introduced the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would have improved national security, streamlined our country’s guest worker system, and created a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented individuals. In June 2015, Polis helped introduce the Equality Act, a bill that brings the protections afforded to LGBT Americans into parity with those afforded to members of other protected groups who face discrimination based on race, gender, religion, or national origin.
