This issue can be addressed through cooperation, the application of law, and the proper allocation of existing resources.
Our current representation has failed to come together and develop an effective strategy. Enhancing the security of our borders is not “anti-immigration.” A weak border allows free access to our citizens by those with anti-American intentions and motivated by radical ideologies. It is an avenue by which many of the drugs, human trafficking, and illegal weapons that are fueling our crisis of addiction flow into the U.S.
Illegal immigration threatens our economy, our educational system, our public safety, and our democracy. Instead, we are rewarding those who enter this country illegally at the expense of American taxpayers. American citizenship is a privilege that comes with responsibilities. It must be earned. If you enter this country by breaking our laws, I believe achieving citizenship should be off the table.
