I do not support amnesty. The United States of America is a nation of laws. Those who come here should respect them. The United States has always welcomed individuals who legally seek to enter our country to work or become citizens, but Congress and the President must make every effort to secure our borders.
Immigrants should meet the current requirements, which should be enforced and updated. As is usually the case, subsidizing something creates more of it, and I feel strongly law abiding America taxpayers should not be forced to pay for welfare, medical care and other expenses for illegal immigrants.
Once the subsidies for illegal immigration are removed, the problem will likely become far less common. We need to reform our immigration system in a way that benefits our communities and reduces the incentive for immigrants to come here illegally.
Millions crossing our border without our knowledge constitutes a clear threat to our nation’s security. I will work to secure our borders immediately.
