George Santos has a five-point plan to secure the border and combat the crisis of illegal immigration.
- Build the Wall: Democrats refuse to put America first. We need a new solution to fund the Border Wall and expanded Border Patrol agents by directing fees from visa applications and enforcement directly to Border Patrol and bypassing Congress.
- Eliminate Sanctuary Cities and States: No city or state should endanger their citizens by allowing illegal immigrant criminals to be shielded from deportation after committing a crime. There are too many instances of American lives being lost to illegal immigrants. These are preventable crimes and is common sense.
- End Chain Migration: Reform legal immigration by replacing chain-migration with a merit-based system of vetting and welcoming the best and brightest.
- Close Loopholes: Reform immigration and asylum laws that tie the hands of our Border Patrol agents! Illegal immigrants are exploiting loopholes and abusing the system to gain entry.
- Mandate & Enforce E-Verify: Remove the incentives driving this crisis by mandating businesses to use E-Verify.
George believes only after Americans have assurances that the cause of the immigration crisis has been addressed should Congress move to provide a pathway of citizenship for individuals in the deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA).
