Immigration

 

I firmly believe in LEGAL immigration not ILLEGAL immigration.  I am concerned with cities becoming Sanctuary Cities for illegal immigrants because it openly professes that being in the United States illegally is not a concern of local government and thus the individual has no worry of being held accountable for their actions.  This type of attitude sends a confusing message to the public that laws that have been violated by illegal immigrants are exempt from any accountability or prosecution.  

 

Entering the United States illegally the first time it is considered a misdemeanor and individuals are traditionally released back into their country of origin.  A second offense is considered a felony and then the individual is detained and legal prosecution for violation of U.S. Federal Law commences.
