Homeland Security and Immigration

Now more than ever, as America faces the threat of terrorism, we must ensure that our borders are secure. We must do everything we can to protect our country from threats by those who wish to do us harm while simultaneously protecting the constitutional rights of citizens. As a member of the House Immigration Reform Caucus, I have been working with my colleagues to address the problems in our current policy. I strongly oppose any proposal to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Today, there are nearly 11 million illegal aliens in the United States. At this critical juncture, we need to improve enforcement of our immigration laws and support provisions that make the legal immigration process viable.

I am committed to reducing illegal immigration into our country, and promoting legal immigration. I support more limited and verifiable forms of immigration. Throughout our history, immigrants have made important scientific, cultural and political contributions to the United States. I believe immigration policy must ensure that the contributions of law-abiding individuals are not eclipsed by the negative impact that illegal immigration may have on our country.

As with any other issue of concern to you and your family, I hope you will take the time to let me know how you feel about this issue. To find the best means to contact me, click here.
