Congressman Carter has been an outspoken leader in calling for an immigration policy that begins by securing the border. He believes that we must take immediate action to help stem the tidal wave of illegal immigrants crossing every day.
Carter has supported action in Congress that has provided billions of dollars for border security measures, including a 700 mile border fence, additional border patrol agents, and border surveillance equipment. Although this is an important step in the right direction, more needs to be done in order to protect our nation.
Once the border is secure, Congressman Carter believes that Congress must take a thoughtful approach to the other issues surrounding legal and illegal immigration in our country.
