Border security and immigration reform are two separate issues that intersect with each other. “Limited Government” means the government should only be involved in what is constitutionally allowed. Defense of the country is chief among government mandates. Therefore I support the use of the National Guard on the border. The National Guard should not be used for overseas missions. We must have a system in place that can weed out dangerous criminals, gang members, and terrorists. It is unacceptable that these people can enter the country undetected. There must also be health screenings in place so that deadly diseases are diagnosed and the proper quarantine procedures can take place. Granting what in in effect amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants by creating a fast-track to citizenship will only encourage more illegal immigration. This is not the answer to immigration reform. I am for open LEGAL immigration, the country was founded by immigrants. I would be open to fast-tracking legal immigrants who wish to work and are high in demand for their skills. I would also be open to simplifying the immigration process overall as it now take too long.
