Ending illegal immigration is critically important to our nation's security and our collective commitment to the rule of law. Our actions to end illegal immigration must be grounded in principle. We must secure our borders. There must be no amnesty for illegal immigrants. We must secure the workplace with a verifiable enforcement program and sanctions for employers who knowingly hire illegal workers. And there must be no preferential treatment for those who have come to America illegally. Ending illegal immigration requires that we be firm, but fair.
