I support providing our men and women at the border with all the resources necessary to secure the border and stop the flow of illegal immigrants, and opposing any forms of amnesty that reward people for breaking the law.
The American Dream has long inspired people from every corner of the globe to seek the unique and bountiful opportunities offered in our great nation. I fully support legal immigration. Immigrants who want to work hard, obey our laws, and live the American Dream have always been a great asset. For those who have abused America’s openness, however, strong and immediate action must be taken. I also support the right of states to pass legislation they deem appropriate to enforce immigration laws where the federal government has failed. I oppose any effort to grant amnesty to those illegal immigrants that have broken the law. At the same time, our legal immigrants should be protected by streamlining the application process.
