Immigration and Border Security

Since our nation’s founding, lawful immigration policy has contributed to a strong country, comprised of hardworking Americans from a variety of backgrounds. Without defined borders, strong values, and reverence for the rule of law, America could not endure or protect its diverse community of citizens. Unfortunately, the rule of law has been degraded by weak border security and outright defiance of our immigration laws.

As a nation, we must hold tightly to the principles that define and unite us, chief among which is the rule of law. Responsible immigration policies and border security strengthen our country, while unchecked migration and a lawless border are significant threat to our national security, our economic security, and our health security. I will work to oppose policies that allow illegal immigration to occur, placing the needs of American citizens—and legal immigrants—before the needs of those who disregard the law.
