Our immigration system is broken. We must act swiftly to ensure we keep the American people safe and enforce the rule of law. Border security must come first. Enough is enough, let’s enforce our laws. We should not only build physical barriers at the border, but also ramp up tech-savvy ways to secure our border, like drones and sensors. As a member of the Homeland Security Committee, I will approach border security holistically, with solutions that make sense for each stretch of the border.

Furthermore, border security leads to a better legal immigration system. When we finally secure the border, we can then talk about next steps for immigration reform. America is the shining city on the hill and the American Dream is alive and well. Migrants should enter legally and we should welcome them and their contributions to society.
