Mick Rich on Immigration

 

 


We can only accept so many immigrants, but let's negotiate

Rich was critical of Democrat leaders who walked out of immigration talks, following Trump's now infamous supposed labeling of many African nations as "sh--thole countries." "Martin Heinrich did nothing to move forward the immigration issues," Rich said.

Immigration is an essential issue to address at the federal level, Rich said. To him, immigrants don't just come for jobs, but to become Americans. "We're looking at this and saying the only people we're holding responsible for immigration issues are employers," Rich said. "We saw kids come here. They weren't coming for jobs, they were coming to live here. It's not just about jobs, it's about freedom."

There is a limit to how many immigrants should be allowed in the country, Rich said, and he said he is committed to negotiating the issue. We can only accept so many immigrants without making it so that nobody can be successful," he said. "It costs substantial funds to bring a person in in immigration. No enough funds are allocated per person."

Border Patrol lacks manpower for drug import corridor

Last year, I traveled to Southwest New Mexico, to hear from New Mexicans that are in the drug import corridor. I learned that the Border Patrol do not patrol the last 25 miles of our state and our country. The Border Patrol stays on county paved roads. The Border Patrol has neither the manpower nor the desire to check when the electronic sensors on the surrounding hilltops are tripped. It did not need to be said: "If trouble comes, you are on your own. Because help is too far away."

Wants immigration pattern stopped before considering pathway

Our country's generosity exceeds our resources to assimilate everyone who wants to immigrate here. Currently, illegal immigrants far outnumber legal immigrants--and we can't even properly vet our legal immigrants. Illegal immigrants who disobey our laws, disrespect our country, or intend to do us harm cannot be allowed to stay. Once our current immigration pattern is reversed, we can address the status of those illegal immigrants who have become responsible members of society.
