My constituents want their government to secure the border, and that will be my first priority as their Representative. Ultimately, this is an issue of national security, and securing our borders is the first step towards a workable immigration reform plan.The federal government has continuously failed to do its job, and Border States and governors are struggling to pick up the pieces because of Washington’s failure to enforce existing laws and work towards reform. I will not support legislation that rewards individuals for breaking the law. We need to address the root problem and reform our legal immigration system so those who want to come here to work can do so in a respectable and fair process.
For more information concerning my work and views on Immigration Reform, please contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
