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.

The current crisis at the border is unparalleled in our history. Every day hundreds, if not thousands, of unaccompanied migrant children cross our southern border. Over 50,000 have crossed the border so far this year. The tide shows no sign of stopping with the Department of Homeland Security projecting a total of 100,000 unaccompanied children crossing the border for the fiscal year on September 30.
