It's Time For Border Security Reform
We need “an all of the above” border-security strategy
We believe that addressing the problems caused by our outdated, broken immigration system requires enhancing border security.
We need an all of the above border-security strategy:
- Barriers in strategic locations, modernized technology and infrastructure, and increases in and retention of personnel.
- Facilitating opportunities to apply for protection outside the US to reduce pressure at the border.
- Hiring more immigration judges and asylum officers, and instituting last-in-first-out during migration surges to ensure timely and proper consideration of asylum claims, while dissuading weak or frivolous claims.
- Increasing legal pathways and streamlining existing ones so migrants have more options than applying for asylum.
Border security efforts should allow our federal government to focus on establishing safety, security, and order by defending us from those that present risks to national security and our rule of law.
