There is a crisis at our border and it must be secured; right now. The border is challenging our national security, illegal drugs and guns are falling into our communities, and humans are being trafficked in the dark of the night.

I understand and support the value of legal immigration. By all means, I want to ensure that the American Dream remains possible for those who desire a better life and immigrate to the U.S. legally.

However, our current immigration system is broken and we must fix the border now and then look at meaningful reforms. I’m all for working with either party to fix this issue and believe we have a moral obligation to work together to find a solution. But first, we must secure the border and stop ignoring the crisis.
