Enforcing our border, standing up for the rule of law
The most basic requirement of a sovereign nation is the clear delineation of a border, and as important: a willingness to enforce it. Unfortunately, the federal government has all but failed in this critical area of national security, with thousands of illegal aliens – many from our southern neighbor, others from who knows where – streaming across our border each and every day.
As Majority Whip, Roy Blunt helped shepherd through Congress a tough but fair immigration bill – a bill that ordered additional security agents to the border, the construction of a southern border fence, and levied stiff penalties on employers caught in violation of the law. In this new Congress, Blunt has once again led the fight by making sure that immigration policies which would grant amnesty to illegal immigrants do not become law.
