The mass number of migrants coming to the border seeking asylum – many crossings illegally – has created a crisis at our southern border. Our open border allows for drugs to pour into our country, women and children to be sex trafficked across the border, and gang members to enter the United States illegally. Susan Wagle stands with President Trump in building the wall. The wall is a national security priority and it must be built by the federal government and not by private entities like some are attempting.
Susan Wagle doesn’t believe this should be a political fight. Congress needs to come together for the security of our country and provide the resources for the President to build the wall and secure the border. She believes we should listen to the experts and fully implement the plan put forward by U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
The tragic death of Kate Stienle by an illegal immigrant in San Francisco should have been a wake-up call for Congress to pass legislation banning so called sanctuary cities. But, like so many problems surrounding immigration reform, Congress has proven itself unable to come together. Susan will fight to ban sanctuary cities and rid our communities of violent MS-13 gang members.
In the U.S. Senate, Susan will work to bring members together to reform our immigration system and secure our border. This includes providing funding for the completion of the wall across the southern border. She knows that we can never allow people who came to this country illegally to jump the line for citizenship. It is wrong and runs counter to the values that have made America the greatest country in the world.
