American citizenship is the single common factor that bridges all social, economic and cultural divides in America. I have always been proud of the immigrant tradition in America and of the vision of our great country as "a shining city on a hill" offering freedom-lovers from all over the world the opportunity to make something of themselves in America. I believe it is important that we continue to welcome those who seek to come to this country legally, but I strongly oppose amnesty or any special benefits for illegal immigrants. I believe we must secure our borders as a matter of national security. In Congress I will work to punish employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants and oppose any and all policies that offer rewards to people who come here illegally.
