Dino Rossi on Immigration

 


Secure the border, then decide on kids of illegal immigrants

Rossi also refused to say whether he favors allowing children of illegal immigrants to remain in the country and start on a path toward citizenship. He said he hasn't heard of a good solution to that issue, and that such questions are moot until the federal government secures the borders.

Murray touted her support for a law that would give such people a chance to be citizens after going to college or joining the military.

No amnesty; finish a tall border fence

America's political leadership has lacked the will to control our borders, making it too easy to get here illegally. At the same time, they have made it much too hard for many high skilled workers and graduates of our universities to stay here and contribute to our economy and our society. Like many Washingtonians, my grandparents came to America through Ellis Island in search of a better life. They were hardworking people who contributed to their community, and America needs people like them. So we need a tall fence, but we also need a high gate. In Washington, there are a number of industries which depend on being able to recruit and hire workers in order to stay competitive in the global market.
