I oppose amnesty for illegal aliens. In Congress, I voted for the "get tough" immigration bill to secure our borders, increase the number of security personnel, and build an extended border fence along our southern border. We need to give law enforcement officials more resources to capture and deport people who are in this country illegally. This is not a comprehensive answer to our security and immigration problems, but it's a step in the right direction. We also must develop tamper-proof, biometrically-encoded Social Security identification cards and make it against the law to hire anyone without one. With this kind of technology in place, we can create secure temporary worker programs for people with special skills and agricultural workers, and hold employers accountable when they knowingly hire undocumented workers.
