Ensure border funding is approved

I urge you to not sign any relevant spending legislation that does not fund the border requests listed in the White House’s FY2018 proposed budget. For too long, the federal government has ignored border security, and I’m confident that the President’s request for funding would reduce illegal immigration at the border and strengthen national security.

Fix the bureaucracy

As a candidate, you often made reference to draining the swamp. As laudable as this goal may be, the “swamp” exists because the federal government has become so gigantic, so invasive, and so all-encompassing that anyone who wishes to get anything done in this country must necessarily apply to Washington at some point — either for help or permission.

Fix your foreign policy

Veto any spending bills that don’t fund your enforcement priorities

I urge you to not sign any relevant spending legislation that does not fund the border requests listed in the White House’s FY2018 proposed budget. For too long, the federal government has ignored border security, and I’m confident that the results of your request for funding would reduce illegal immigration at the border and strengthen national security.

Reduce legal immigration

I was concerned by your recent statements to the Economist where you said that you did not want to reduce legal immigration levels. These statements contradict your Joint Address to Congress when you said, “Protecting our workers also means reforming our system of legal immigration. The current, outdated system depresses wages for our poorest workers, and puts great pressure on taxpayers.”
