A BETTER WAY TO ACHIEVE IMMIGRATION REFORM
Securing America's borders must be Congress' highest priority. If they fail to do so, all other measures will have little effect. We cannot have a secure nation without a secure border.
Congress has failed in its obligation to deliver real immigration reform that protects our borders and ensures the safety of our citizens, thus placing an economic burden on the American taxpayer and fraudulent use of taxpayer-funded government programs.
On the Montgomery City Council, Martha chaired a committee on immigration that led Montgomery to adopt an ordinance to comply with federal law and prohibit businesses from harboring illegal aliens.
Martha knows that there is a better way to immigration reform, but first Congress must act, and must act now. To assure the integrity of the immigration process, Martha opposes any legislation offering amnesty or any pathway to citizenship for anyone who has disregarded our laws and opposes any legislation creating government benefits for illegal immigrants.
Martha knows we must secure America's borders, enforce current law, deport those with criminal convictions that have received final deportation orders and provide the Border Patrol the resources, training and technology to keep illegal immigrants out of our country.
Congress shall do all it can to protect the American people and this includes unlawful entry into our country.
