There is no debate that we need to reform our immigration laws. We have millions of productive immigrants in this country just waiting for the chance to become citizens, yet our system is mired in partisan politics and therefore nothing gets done. But that is only the tip of the iceberg! There are thousands of immigrants streaming across the border illegally every day. Our laws do not adequately allow our border patrol agents to detain and vet who is crossing the border. Most are asylum seekers that should be treated with respect and allowed the opportunity to seek asylum. However, there is a legal process, and crossing the border illegally is not the way that our system should accept.
Let's secure the border and fix the immigration laws to reward those that seek citizenship the proper way.
