Candidate Notes

The foundation of any strong country is respect for the rule of law.  Sarah believes that is especially true when it comes to the sacred right of American citizenship.  That is why Sarah will oppose any effort to grant amnesty to those who are in this country illegally.  We should not reward those who are only here because they have broken the law with American citizenship.  Furthermore, we should end the wasteful and unfair practice of providing government benefits to illegal immigrants.
 
For too long, our border security has been a joke.  Drug traffickers, human smugglers, and terrorists all know this.  Still, the politicians in Washington have refused to take action to secure our borders.  I support securing our border through the completion of the border fence on the U.S.-Mexican border, increasing border patrol agents on both the Mexican and Canadian borders, and by supporting the efforts of states like Arizona who are ready, willing, and able to take action to enforce the laws the politicians in Washington will not.  I will also support any efforts to increase the punishment for employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants.
