Immigration

I ran for Congress focused on securing the border. 

It is my belief that the federal government should be focused on keeping America safe and secure. Congress should be focused on securing our borders and shoring up American sovereignty. 

As a member of Congress, I'm focused on making sure America is safe for both Americans and the migrants who seek to come here legally. What border security looks like to me is both a wall and greater interior enforcement to stem the tide of illegal presence. Once we've secured the border, I believe we should focus our efforts on designing an immigration system based on American values, not those of special interests and Washington politicians. Our immigration laws should welcome those who want to work hard and embrace the American dream and way of life.
