The first step to curbing illegal immigration in the United States is to enforce the laws that already exist. It is estimated that illegal immigrants cost the American taxpayers nearly $100 billion a year in education, health care, and law enforcement. If amnesty for illegal immigrants is enacted it could cost taxpayers $2 trillion and higher. I am strongly opposed to amnesty for illegal immigrants and do not believe it is in the best interest of our country.

Employers need effective tools to determine if a worker is in our country legally and eligible for work. Those businesses that knowingly break the law should be fined. Border security must be increased. A fence or other physical barrier should be a priority for the safety of our country. English should be the official language of the United States. Learning English is a key to success in this nation, and few countries have positive results when they share multiple languages. Our country needs a practical seasonal guest worker program. A documented guest worker program can benefit our economy and should be made as simple as possible so as not to be onerous to employers.
