To ensure National Defense and Security the US must have secure borders. Our southern border is insecure. Every year, hundreds of thousands of people of all ages come into this country illegally. We have no record of who they are or where they go or why they are in the US. Many come for economic opportunity to find work. Their presence in some industries is vital to fill labor needs, such as, in the hospitality, construction and agriculture market sectors. This also results in depressing wages for our citizens and opens these immigrants to exploitation and abuse.
