Immigration Reform

Our immigration system in this country is broken. 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.

The National Immigration Forum appreciates the opportunity to provide its views on the benefits of immigration in building a more dynamic economy. U.S. economic growth is outpacing growth in workers. As a result, labor...

I authored the following op-ed in the McAllen Monitor explaining my bipartisan legislation to address the current border crisis while preserving our strong relationship with Mexico.

Our Democratic colleagues continue to pretend that there is not a problem.
I issued the following statements regarding the 75th anniversary of D-Day; H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act; and possible tariffs on imports from Mexico.
