Sam Brownback supports the border fence and so should you.
Kansas Senator Sam Brownback is all for securing the country’s borders, even if it means construction of a 700-foot fence between the United States and Mexico. Another 300 miles of the border would be guarded by a vehicle barrier and would increase detention facilities to put an end to what he calls the “catch and release” program currently used in handling illegal immigrants entering the country.
But there’s more to it than simply deporting illegals. Attacking the supply of illegal labor is pointless without attacking the demand, something which many seem to miss.
Increasing the number of border guards is only part of his plan to secure the borders against illegal entry into the United States, as he wants to remove the incentive for illegal immigrants crossing the border. Tighter controls and stiffer penalties for companies that knowingly hire illegals will help remove the incentive, according to Brownback and it will take federal involvement to make it happen.
That is the key. If businesses do not offer jobs to illegal immigrants they will cease flooding into our nation. The problem would solve itself. Sam Brownback: sensible solutions for a safer America.
