Our immigration system is broken, and our nation is in desperate need of a long-term solution to both fully secure our borders and tackle long-overdue legal immigration reform.
For decades, both parties have claimed to understand the need for barriers and other technologies to keep criminals, drugs, and human traffickers from crossing our porous border. But instead of solving problems like we were elected to do, partisan bickering and political games continue to win the day.
As a veteran, I know first-hand the importance of getting things done and prioritizing security and the safety of my community. I will keep fighting to make sure Congress fully supports the President’s call for a long-term solution to both fully securing our borders and transition to a skills-based immigration system.
