I believe border security should be our top priority when looking at immigration reform. We need leadership in Washington that puts an emphasis on border security; and we need to secure the border by whatever means is appropriate, whether it’s by building a physical wall or a virtual wall using technology along with boots on the ground. I was proud to vote to support funding to build President Trump’s wall, and I will continue to support measures that ensure the security of the American people is protected.
While we need to reform our immigration process to make it easier for our agriculture community to bring in the assistance they need while also increasing the number of visas available to highly-skilled, highly-educated immigrants who would benefit the American economy, I will not support proposals that give amnesty by rewarding those who come here illegally with citizenship.
