It is imperative that we secure our borders and not reward those who have broken our laws.
Where I stand
Illegal immigration is a serious issue for both the state of North Carolina and our country as a whole. It is imperative that we secure our borders and not reward those who have broken our laws with amnesty. The anti-illegal immigration group NumbersUSA consistently names me as one of the top supporters of anti-illegal immigration enforcement of all 435 members of Congress.
Legislative Action in the 114th Congress
H.R. 140 - The Birthright Citizenship Act - Would end the process of birthright citizenship, which allows the children of illegal aliens born in the United States to become US citizens.
H.R. 604 - Nuclear Family Priority Act - Would end “chain migration” by eliminating extended family categories that go far beyond the original immigrant and giving priority to the nuclear family in immigration requests. Chain migration is the process where seemingly endless “chains” of foreign nationals are allowed to immigrate to the United States, since our laws allow citizens and lawful permanent residents to bring in their non-nuclear, adult family members. It is the primary mechanism through which legal immigration in this country has quadrupled since the 1960s.
H.R. 997 - English Language Unity Act - Would declare English as the official language of the United States. This means that at the federal level, English is the official language and broadly construes that the federal government has an affirmative obligation to preserve and enhance the role of English as the official language. Having an official language means that whenever a government acts with binding authority, it must use that language.
H.R. 2942 - Grant’s Law - Requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to keep illegal alien criminals in custody and to complete deportation proceedings within 90 days of arrest. Grant’s Law is named after Grant Ronnebeck, a 21 year-old cashier murdered by an illegal alien who was a convicted felon.
H.R. 3009 - Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act - Would deny federal funding from a number of federal programs to sanctuary cities across the United States.
H.R. 3011 – Kate’s Law – Would ensure that any adult illegal immigrant who is deported from the United States and chooses to again enter our country illegally will face a sentence of no less than five years in prison.
