I favor no pathway to legalization or citizenship prior to addressing overstayed visas, implementing a work verification system in all 50 states, physically securing our southern border, ending sanctuary cities, and tracking down others who have unlawfully entered our borders.
Securing the border begins with a fence, more border patrol agents, and unmanned aerial surveillance.
Next, since about 40% of the illegal immigrants in the US are on overstayed visas, we need to reform tracking for visa overstays.
America also needs a more effective and efficient employment verification system so that companies can have confidence that the people they hire are legally entitled to work.
Likewise, we must reform guest worker programs to make sure that American workers aren’t being displaced in the process of companies meeting legitimate worker shortages.
