Issue Position: Securing Our Borders, Enforcing Our Laws
John wants to enact a strong immigration reform bill that secures our borders and puts a premium on strict enforcement of our immigration laws.
John is trying to force Congress to act on the Secure America Through Verification and Enforcement Act (H.R. 4088), bipartisan legislation aimed at strengthening border security and ensuring that employers verify their workers are legal. And he fought efforts by the Democrat-led Congress to cut funding for the Secure Fence Act and has pushed for other additional resources for federal and state authorities that will help strengthen border patrol efforts.
Above all else, John believes the success of our country depends on newcomers obeying the law, assimilating into American society by learning English, and embracing our common identity as Americans.
