Former member of the US House of Representatives (R-TX), 14th District of Texas
Con to the question "Should the Government Allow Immigrants Who Are Here Illegally to Become US Citizens?"
"The problems associated with illegal immigration cannot be addresses unless and until we gain physical control of our borders and coastlines... The number one priority for Congress should be securing our borders - no immigration reform is possible until then. Once we have control over who is entering the country, we can begin to reform the legal immigration process... Amnesty for lawbreakers is not the answer, and it's time to rethink birthright citizenship."
