Issue Position: Immigration
Securing America's porous borders and controlling illegal immigration are two of the most important issues for the future of our country. That is why I have introduced the ENFORCE Act to increase criminal penalties for first-time illegal entry, increase the number of agents available to police the border and establish criminal penalties for forging federal documents.
Our constituents throughout the country have spoken loud and clear and elected officials in Washington, D.C. should listen. Any immigration solutions need to adhere to the following principles:
* No proposals that grant amnesty or that would shortcut the naturalization process.
* No proposals that reward illegal aliens for their illegal acts.
* No proposals that perpetuate the porous nature of our borders.
