"First and foremost the federal government must act to secure our borders." -- Ron Johnson
The first step towards controlling illegal immigration is securing our borders. Ron believes the federal government has failed to enforce current immigration laws and tighten our borders to stop the flow of illegal immigration.
Ron opposes blanket amnesty.
Ron also supports REAL ID, requiring employers to verify the Social Security numbers of potential employees. Ron supports providing law enforcement the necessary tools, such as the Patriot Act, to protect our country.
Businesses or employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants should be penalized and we should take steps to prevent abuse or exploitation of workers due to their immigration status.
