Secure our borders and enforce our laws

Our immigration system must secure our borders and enforce our laws as a basic matter of national security and rule of law. Once our borders are secure, we can begin a national debate on developing a system where law-abiding people can seek a path to legal residence and in some cases citizenship. Our immigration policies should give preference to people who bring unique skills, innovative ideas, technologies and companies to our country.
