Should Congress fully fund the completion of the entry/exit system at all borders and points of entry in which every person entering and leaving the U.S. is logged into a database which would notify law enforcement, businesses and others when a foreign tourist, student, worker or other fails to leave on-time? *(US-VISIT was approved by Congress in 1996 and has never been sufficiently funded and is largely incomplete.)
Should Congress implement the bi-partisan, national Jordan Commission recommendation to limit family-based immigration to the nuclear family of spouse and minor children, thus eliminating the "chain migration" categories of extended family that are the key reason immigration has quadrupled since the 1960s?
Until 1976, U.S. immigration tradition was an average of around 250,000 a year; since new legislation in 1990, it has averaged 1,000,000 a year. More than 38 million foreign workers and dependents now live in the U.S. At current rates, immigration will add more than 100 million additional people to the U.S. population by 2060. This government-forced rapid population expansion will require huge increases in energy, roads and other infrastructure and services. Do you favor reducing overall immigration numbers toward the traditional levels?
Rep. Bob Goodlatte has voted to block funding for Pres. Obama's executive actions that grants deferred action to certain illegal aliens. However, he has also expressed support for legalizing illegal aliens.
"If we can have a way to get [enforcement] up and operating, I see no reason why we can't also have an agreement that shows how people who are not lawfully here can be able to be lawfully here -- able to live here, work here, travel to and from their home country, be able to own a business, pay their taxes," Rep. Goodlatte said on the Telemundo show "Enfoque."
