Greatly strengthen border security; install a Smart Fence

Our immigration system is broken and requires comprehensive reform. We need to greatly strengthen the security along our border. I support providing the Border Patrol with the resources and technology it requires to secure our borders, both north and south. I support a high tech “Smart Fence” where it makes sense, which combines new technology and Border personnel to keep our country secure.
