On the farm, keeping what you want in and what you don't want out is important. Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong in order to do their job. Over the past several decades, immigration policy has gotten horribly off course and now threatens our national security and our economy.
I welcome any law abiding person to our country who comes here legally and embraces the American culture. But for the sake of our national security, we must secure our borders immediately. Somehow the greatest country on earth, who put a man on the moon, can't build a fence along the border with Mexico? The time for political games is over.
A border fence should be erected immediately. Those here illegally should be sent home. We should enact a common sense guest worker program that allows people to come here for a short period of time to work in jobs such as agriculture and then go back home.
I voted for Georgia's new immigration law, which has been called one of the toughest immigration laws in the country, and I have a consistent, proven record of opposing illegal immigration. Barrow and Obama want to give illegals amnesty, free health care and free welfare. When elected to Congress, I will support policies that secure our borders, protect our national security, and reform legal immigration. I will never support amnesty.
