America is a nation of immigrants. To not acknowledge that is to ignore history. However, we are also a nation of laws. We need to secure our borders and stop illegal immigrants from entering the US. We need to locate every illegal already in the country and put in motion a plan to deal with each one. I will never favor amnesty, and any type of path to citizenship should begin back at the border.
Rewarding people for breaking laws is wrong. I support the Federal 287(g) program that aids local jurisdictions by working with them to deport criminal aliens. This program is being used to great affect around the United States, and I want to make it easier for localities to implement it.
