Immigration

Immigration and border security go hand in hand. The border must be secure, and the Republican Party has to put forward a plan to deal with the millions of illegal immigrants in this country. President Obama’s executive action does not solve the problem but neither would any attempt at a mass deportation. The United States needs to identify the people who are here and ensure they are properly taxed. That way, no one gets a free ride on the taxpayer’s dime.
Immigration is a highly complicated issue, and for complex problems, Congress has traditionally needed an emergency to act. There hasn’t been one to force Congress's hand up to this point.
