Border Security/ Immigration

I am against amnesty for illegal aliens. We need to strongly enforce the immigration laws that already exist. Provide funding for stronger border fencing and control along the U.S./Mexican border. We need to hold employers accountable who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.
