Legal immigrants are the embodiment of the American dream. Their contributions to our country make us stronger. However, a sovereign nation must maintain its borders. It is imperative that we secure the border and enforce the rule of law.
Our immigration system is broken. In order to keep our people safe, critical border funding is needed to secure our border and provide aid to our border agents. Congress has held up that funding for years, tabling important work and forcing our border agents to work with limited resources. We must move past partisan divides to keep our people safe.
