SECURE OUR BORDERS
The federal government has no greater responsibility than to protect and defend the homeland, and that begins with a safe, secure and strong border. Unfortunately, for far too long, our government has failed in meeting this critical goal. The status quo is completely unacceptable, particularly in the post-9/11 world we live in today. We must secure the border and that begins with implementing more strategic fencing, more boots on the ground with increased support for law enforcement and strengthening the use of technology up-and-down our borders. Put simply, securing the border must be a top priority in any reform effort.
