We’ve been hearing a lot about immigration lately. Republicans are afraid to lose future elections and add to our welfare problem. Democrats want to appear compassionate and thoughtful, but are refusing highly educated immigrants and technology companies the opportunity to compete. I want something fair, fiscally responsible, and transparent.
No matter what their views are on immigration, most people are perplexed. We deserve a system that encourages the world’s best and brightest to bring their ideas and talents to America and develop them. We want responsible and hardworking people to find a home here legally. We want to ensure that families on both sides of our borders are safe from border-related violence, human smuggling and threats. And we also need to secure our borders with the most recent technology.
When you send me to Washington to work for you, I will formulate and implement policies that welcome industrious, productive immigrants and their families as new participants in the American Dream.
Let’s reform immigration in a way that makes sense for the families who live here and for the families who want to live here.
