We must find a consensus over immigration that recognizes the realities of our current situation, prepares us for future economic challenges, and lives up to the promise that America has long offered the world. We must reform our immigration system so that those who comply with our laws and seek entry legally are not disadvantaged versus those who enter our country illegally or who overstay their visas. We simply cannot open our borders to anyone who wants to be here, and we need to put in place and enforce laws that are respected, not flouted. But we have to accept that there are many here who, through no fault of their own, have been raised in our country, and we must accept them as our fellow Americans. I support sensible border security, increased interdiction and swift repatriation of those who arrive illegally. I oppose sanctuary cities and would vote to withhold federal aid to any city that seeks to defy federal law or actively oppose the efforts of federal officials to uphold the law.
