Jim knows that our current immigration system is broken and he believes that the federal government needs to meet its responsibility to fix this problem. He feels strongly that what we need is a comprehensive bipartisan solution that puts common sense ideas ahead of politics. One place he thinks we can start is by securing our borders and encouraging the federal government to review and process all applications for immigration to the United States in a timely and transparent way. Jim supports reforms to ensure that everyone is held accountable and plays by the same rules.
