If we have no border, we have no country.
While we are a nation that welcomes immigrants, we are also a nation of laws. It should never be the case that our government is more responsive to the needs and comforts of illegal aliens than to our own citizens.
An open or porous border poses a threat to American security, American jobs, American wages, and the American economy. As Americans, our hearts go out to anyone in the world that is suffering or in need. As your congressman, my first loyalty will be to you and your family. I will support border security measures, work to secure funding for a border wall, and work to ensure our Border Patrol agents are properly equipped and empowered to do their job.
