I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.
State and federal funds should be denied to any public or private entity, including but not limited to sanctuary cities, that are not in compliance with immigration laws.
Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
With a secure border where all who enter America can be positively identified, with visa overstays effectively eliminated, I favor creating a new conditional visa. People who present themselves to an embassy or consulate in their home countries could apply for a conditional 3-year visa that allows them to live, work, or go to school in the USA. It would make them ineligible for all means tested programs or unemployment benefits and require immediate removal for felony offenses. To obtain this visa, recipients would be required to provide valid, verifiable identification, not be a fugitive from justice, nor have any affiliations with terror or criminal organizations. At the end of three years, visa-holders would be eligible for Green Cards and follow the established path for citizenship. Lastly, America should welcome refugees from areas affected by US actions and help other refugees establish safe relocation closer to their home countries.
