Immigration reform should be aimed reducing the unlawfully present population and deterring future illegal immigration. It should also include transitioning to a merit-based system, and promote patriotic assimilation.
Legal immigration, border security, and enforcement should not be part of a single all-inclusive legislative package; each issue should be addressed based on their individual merits.
Secure our borders
Respect the consent of the governed.
Preserve patriotic assimilation.
Protect national security and public safety.
Respect the rule of law.
I support local law enforcement efforts to remove those here unlawfully that break the law and pose a danger to American citizens.
