The people of southern New Mexico have dealt with the challenges of illegal immigration long before cable news was invented. Most people can agree on a common set of principles that revolve around respect for people and upholding the law. In Congress, Steve Pearce worked to put 4,000 new agents on America's borders. Pearce will work to secure the border, to streamline the broken immigration system, to ensure that guest workers who enter the country do so legally and he will encourage legal immigration. We will respect people, but we will also insist the law be followed. Legal immigration has been an integral part of America's development as a richly diverse nation. Steve Pearce will work to continue the great traditions of our country while insisting that the laws of our land are upheld.
