"Immigration

Since 2001, border security funding has more than doubled. Border agents have apprehended and sent home more than 4.5 million people coming into the country illegally, including about 350,000 with criminal records. The border must be open to trade and tourism and closed to criminals, drug dealers, and terrorists.

Like most Kentuckians, I am opposed to granting amnesty to persons who have entered our nation illegally. Amnesty not only forces the costs of illegal immigration on the American people, but also punishes those who play by the rules and achieve U.S. residency legally. Furthermore, the threat of terrorists coming into our country has made it essential that we fully protect our borders.

While much is being done to combat illegal immigration, much more needs to be done. As a member of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus, I am working with my Caucus colleagues to enact meaningful immigration reform legislation. I have cosponsored legislation, such as the Secure America with Verification and Enforcement (SAVE) Act to make important and common sense improvements to border security.I look forward to working with my Caucus colleagues to enact this immigration reform legislation into law.
