Our country is in urgent need of a new immigration policy. We need common-sense laws that will crack down on illegal immigration and protect our nation from those who wish us harm.

Border security is first and foremost a matter of national security. In the post-9/11 world, protecting our borders must be a top priority. But Illegal immigration is also about economic security.

While America has always been a welcoming nation, illegal immigration creates an sub-class of workers who provide unfair competition with the many hardworking Oklahomans who are struggling to make ends meet. As a result, undocumented workers have driven down wages, benefits and working conditions for all workers.

Dan Boren believes immigration reform should reflect a commitment to enforcement, not reward those who break the rules with amnesty.

Since first elected, Congressman Boren has:

* Voted to place more inspectors and canine units at border crossings

* Voted to require all employers to check the immigration status of job applicants and stiffen penalties against employers for hiring illegal immigrants

* Voted to construct a 700-mile fence along the southern border
