We have a sovereign duty to protect our citizens, not only physically but fiscally as well. Illegal immigration puts both of these at risk. We are a country that is guided by the rule of law, and out of control illegal immigration makes a mockery of this principle. Furthermore, the financial strain that illegal immigrants place on our society and governmental service is staggering. We must use all means necessary to secure the Texas border, end the incentives which encourage illegal behavior, and pass sanctuary cities legislation.
