There’s a reason that people from all over the world come to the United States. The USA truly is the land of opportunity. For America to continue as a desired destination, we need to fix our current dysfunctional immigration system. We need to secure our border, prioritize legal immigration, and reform the bureaucratic system of caps and quotas.
U.S. citizenship is worth preserving and valuing. That means opposing quick-fixes like granting amnesty to people who’ve illegally entered the country; it means ensuring that our borders and ports of entry are properly guarded and secured. Without securing the border, we risk empowering cartels and perpetuating a cycle of criminal activity including human, drug, and arms trafficking. Lastly, by reforming U.S. policy surrounding birthright citizenship and federally funded welfare programs, we can mitigate problematic incentives that lead individuals to illegally cross the border. Lastly, by adjusting apportionment and directing the Census to count only U.S. citizens, Congress can ensure that American citizens get their fair share of representation and funding from federal programs.
