We need to secure our borders now. It is unfair to those who try to immigrate legally when we reward those who broke our laws. I introduced legislation that provides U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents unfettered access to public lands along our southern border.
Once our borders are secure, we need to overhaul our legal immigration process. The federal bureaucracy has made this process slow and cumbersome. We need better visa management, a pilot guest worker program and better citizenship programs. We also need to expand the H-1B visa program so people who are educated in our universities can contribute to our economy here in the United States.
