Florida needs to institute comprehensive immigration reform now, to ensure that our borders are safe and secure, and that we are investing fully in protecting American jobs, our public health care system and our public education system from any threat that is posed to it by illegal immigrants.
In addition, I am committed to supporting and passing legislation, similar to the Arizona-style immigration reform here in Florida. And, I believe we need to place much more stringent laws on businesses to prevent the hiring and employment of any, and all illegal immigrants.
Further, I strongly and adamantly oppose amnesty of any type for illegal immigrants. America is a nation of laws, and I believe that those in violation of the law should not be rewarded through amnesty.
Illegal immigration is out of control in our state and country, and I believe it is time for Florida to step up to the plate and pass comprehensive immigration reform, and I am committed to being a leader in taking the necessary steps forward to ending this problem facing our state.
