Immigrants play a vital role in our economy, bringing skills and hard work to jobs that can at times be thankless. At the same time, we have a responsibility to seal our borders and ensure that those who enter our country do so legally.

* Buddy Roemer would enforce immigration laws, but welcome those that are here legally and consider policies to allow illegal aliens to return to their home countries and apply for legal entry into the United States.

* Immigration quotas should be adjusted based on the needs of the labor market to fill jobs, rather than working from a set number or policy.
