On The Issues - Immigration

Over the past 20 years, our borders have become more porous, the influx of illegal immigrants has dramatically increased, while the enforcement of our existing immigration laws has decreased.

We need to welcome new immigrants to our country, but our immigration policy can not come at the expense of securing our borders or our basic principles such as upholding the rule of law, the assimilation of new citizens and government accountability.

I support legislation that first addresses our most urgent problem: securing America's borders. We must start by using new technologies such as electronic surveillance where most effective. We need to enforce current laws by holding responsible those who willfully violate our nation's immigration laws. Also, reforming the current system for processing legal applicants for immigration must occur before attempting to add new programs to an already overburdened system.
