Securing our Borders

Washington has failed when it comes to solving the problem of illegal immigration. As a former prosecutor, Trent believes in upholding the law.

We need to confront this problem on two fronts. First and foremost, we need to secure the border. Secondly, the federal government has got to crack down on employers who hire illegal immigrants. It's time we held these corporations accountable.

Trent believes we also need to increase our enforcement of laws against passport and visa fraud.

It's not surprising that states are attempting to deal with an issue for which Washington has failed them. The federal government must step up, enforce our laws and do their job to prevent immigrants from crossing into our country illegally.

We need a fundamental, bipartisan common sense solution to immigration reform, now more than ever.
