Christopher Reed on Immigration

Republican challenger


Punish those who cross the border illegally

I believe that crossing the border illegally is breaking the law and violators should be punished and sent back to their own country of origin. They should not be rewarded with perks like free medical care, ID cards, driver's license, the right to vote, in-state tuition and more.

Illegal border crossers are felons, not "guests"

Q: What would you propose to curb the flow of illegal immigrants into the country?

A: First and foremost we need to protect and defend our borders. Crossing our borders illegally is a felony. Those persons crossing the border illegally need to be dealt with as felons, not "guests". Come to our country right or don't come here at all. I believe in our Melting Pot. However, those folks coming here in search of a better life need to assimilate to our way of life, not the other way around.
