We need to secure our borders now. I believe ending illegal immigration and border security are national security issues. The federal government has failed utterly to fulfill its responsibilities. President Obama and Speaker Pelosi have made a greater effort to bring the masterminds behind the 9/11 attacks to the United States and to protect their rights than they have made to keep drug smugglers, human traffickers, and terrorists out of the United States and to protect our rights.
I support the Kyl-McCain plan to send the National Guard to our border now. A recent study by the Congressional Research Service shows that fences work. This is a problem we can solve, if we have the right leaders in Congress. The politicians in Washington are out of touch with the people of our State and our great country. I will fight to secure our borders and for real immigration reform, not an amnesty.
