Border security - Immigration/legal & illegal

I support legal immigration and a complete audit of the INS. The completion of a border fence will dramatically stem the tide of illegal immigration however, we can not stop there. I will fight for immigration reform and a competent plan for securing our borders. This plan would be founded in the honor and respect that should be given to all those who have legally immigrated to this country. Competent reform will establish, as it has in the past, the patriotic pride that each and every U.S. immigrant should have. To allow anything less would undermine the very foundation and core principals of this great country.

The illegal immigration in this country is an epidemic that can no longer be ignored. We have a moral and financial obligation to every U.S. citizen to get this right once and for all. Our moral obligation is found in the god given human dignity that is a right of every human being. We have a financial obligation to every U.S. citizen to not waste taxpayers money. The human toll is always in the forefront of the news however, the financial toll is not. I have included some financial information that supports the emergent need to act now, not later.
