I am very concerned about the issue of illegal immigration and border security. I do not have an issue with people immigrating into our country, but it should be done legally. For years now, both parties have been kicking the immigration reform can down the road. The amounts spent on caring for illegal immigrants’ needs far outweigh the amount that is required for the reinforcement of our border.
Both the Republican and Democratic parties must work together with the president to accomplish this border reinforcement. In years past, Democrats have voted for and approved these improvements. What has happened to change this other than a different president? Put the party politics aside, vote for the improved security needs, and then reform our immigration laws. Our members of Congress should do as they swore to do when they took office to protect and defend our Constitution and country. – DJ Nelson Durham
