Strict immigration reform is a top priority in Congress. We must enforce, reform and strengthen immigration laws not only help our distressed economy, but to address national security concerns.
We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws. We must make sure our state law enforcement agencies are given the proper training and tools they need to enforce immigration laws, and we must strengthen penalties for employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.
I also believe in promoting patriotic assimilation by making English the official language of government. This and other immigration reforms will assist in joining our diverse cultures under one great nation.
