We must secure our borders, Period. We have a crisis at our southern border that continues because Democrats in Congress refuse to acknowledge the problem and refuse to act.
No nation is secure without a border that it controls, and that’s why we need to build a wall where possible and provide cutting-edge technology and more funding and resources to the Border Patrol, ICE and Coast Guard to ensure that we enforce the immigration laws that keep American citizens safe. I am in favor of legal immigration and believe that those who follow the rules and become American citizens are not only wonderful contributors to our society but also recognize the glory of Democracy and that it is worth fighting for.
The border isn’t just an immigration issue: it’s a national security issue. It doesn’t do any good for our brave soldiers to take to the fight to our foes overseas if those same enemies can walk right across our northern or southern borders or sail right into our ports.
