  • Create Secure Borders: Protect the integrity of our borders. Support additional personnel, infrastructure and technology on the border and at our ports of entry.

    Improve Our Immigration System: Fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families together and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill.

    Remove Incentives to Enter Illegally: Remove incentives to enter the country illegally by cracking down on employers who hire undocumented immigrants.

    Bring People Out of the Shadows: Support a system that allows undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.

    Work with Mexico: Promote economic development in Mexico to decrease illegal immigration.

  • Me too...especially since Prez Obama wants to create scores of new jobs..which I believe would many would be in the construction business (infrastructure). BUTTT! the only way illegals can get jobs, is because some company is hiring them. I believe that companies should be fined up the arse for hiring undocumented workers (no work visas, no ss#, etc.) I believe then is when you will see a difference in the migration of illegal workers coming to America, from ANY country. Companies would be too fearful of the loss of $$$$$ thru hefty fines to hire undocumented workers. Until companies are held accountable for their hiring practices, I doubt much will change.

  • I care more about H1B visas being granted to Indians and Chinese both being 3rd world countries (1 of which is communist) that have 1 billion people each and many are coming, I see the increase in my area big. They are taking good paying jobs of educated and/or intelligent Americans who deserve the opps. What the hell good is an American education if Microsoft continues to say we need H1B visas to fill jobs that no one here can fill. Soon we'll be overrun by Indians/Chinese. Indigenous neighbors are not my concern. Though I agree w/Border patrols for the sake of legality and drugs.
