The American people want the U.S. Government to obey and enforce existing laws. That starts with building a fence on our southern border, which was required by a 2006 federal law, and signed by President George W. Bush in a well publicized photo op. Instead of building the fence that Congress ordered, the government spent nearly $2 billion building what was called a virtual fence. It didn't work, and now is being dismantled at additional expense.
Before we even start talking about amnesty, the American people want and expect a border fence to be built like the efficient, successful fence that protects the border near San Diego. That means a 12-foot-high double fence with a road in between. We also want enforcement of the entry-exit system, whereby people admitted on visas are tracked to make sure they leave the U.S. when their temporary visit expires. That’s another federal border law that has never been enforced.
