Border Security

Our borders are too porous and September 11th demonstrated that the United States cannot afford to not know who is coming in and out of our country and for what purpose.  I voted for the tough House bill that puts more border patrol agents, properly equipped with advance detection technology, along our southern borders.  This bill also included tightening immigration laws that would stop the practice of catch and release.  Border security, including our ports, has to be a national priority.
