  • What impact does immigration have on your district?

Immigration is an issue that has had a real impact on Fairfax County and Northern Virginia as a whole. The stark reality is that the federal immigration system is broken from top to bottom. In short, it's too difficult to immigrate legally and too easy to immigrate illegally. We must overhaul the system to make the legal immigration process transparent and more efficient. Simultaneously, we must secure the borders and stop the flow of illegal immigrants.
