Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"This legislation seeks to secure our nation’s borders and prevent illegal immigration through a number of means. With millions of illegal aliens presently in the United States and countless more entering every day, timely enactment of H.R. 4437 into law is vital to protecting our nation and ensuring the integrity of our laws... There is a right way and a wrong way to enter our country. Even as America remains a beacon of hope for legal immigrants and true asylum-seekers, there must be accountability for those who violate the law, whether illegal aliens or those businesses who knowingly hire them. The present lack of enforcement of our immigration laws is unfair to both the American people and those immigrants who come here lawfully. I voted with the majority of my colleagues in passing H.R. 4437, which is now pending in the Senate."
