Wherever I go, people express a growing anger over the illegal immigration that is overwhelming our southern border. People ask me:
• “How can we talk about securing the border in the Ukraine or Iraq while our own border is wide open?”
• “How can we talk about supporting the population of Central America when we’re $18 trillion in debt?”
• “How can we talk about giving jobs to millions of illegal immigrants when fewer Americans are working today than when the so-called recovery began?”
• “If the federal government can’t defend our own border, what good is it?”
Mr. Speaker, I cannot answer them.
