Congressman Rooney wholeheartedly believes that our nation's border security and national security are unquestionably linked and America's survival is dependent on securing our border. In Congress, Rooney has been a vocal advocate for securing our porous borders and enforcing existing federal immigration laws.
Congressman Rooney opposes amnesty in any form for illegal aliens. We are nation of immigrants but we are also a nation of laws. Rooney will not support rewarding illegal behavior with amnesty when thousands of other immigrants are playing by the rules and going through the proper channels to become American citizens. Rooney also supports adding more border patrol agents and finishing the border fence along the southern border.
