I believe it is absolutely necessary for our country to secure our borders. In accordance with existing law, we need to take all appropriate steps to immediately plan, design, and construct a physical wall along the southern border of the U.S. In addition, we need to hire additional Border Patrol agents and put a stop to chain migration. For too long, our immigration policy has been broken, and it has created a national security crisis that will only be solved once our borders are secure again. In particular, we must act to defund sanctuary cities immediately. In the House, I was proud to support a bill that would have done exactly that. We passed it, and it went on to fail in the Senate which reinforces the need for our state to have another Senator that will stand for the rule of law and against illegal immigration.
