An unsecured border is a direct threat to public safety and our national security. I support securing our border with a physical wall, technology, and a properly staffed border patrol. This comprehensive approach is critical to slowing human trafficking and ending the flow of cheap narcotics that are wrecking the lives of too many young people in our communities. Immigration is the foundation of our country and our communities are better for it. But it must be done correctly and honor those who waited and went through the correct process. I will support immigration reform for those folks who are diligently working to improve their lives – but anyone who has committed additional crimes while in the USA must be deported.
