Adam Kinzinger on Immigration

 

 


First and foremost, secure our borders

We are a nation of immigrants but there is a legal way to come to America. Illegal immigration places an extreme burden on our public services and our communities--a burden that is not sustainable.

We need to first and foremost secure our borders. If we solved our illegal immigration problem tomorrow, the matter would only become a problem again without proper actions in securing our borders. The National Guard is an effective tool in getting us one-step closer to securing our border.

Improve visa process to get more travelers from China.

Kinzinger signed Welcoming Business Travelers and Tourists to America Act

A BILL: To promote job creation in the US by addressing inefficiencies in the visa processing system that discourage overseas business and leisure travel to the US.

    Congress finds the following:
  1. International travel to the US generates more than $134 billion annually in exports and supports 1.8 million US jobs
  2. Global travel spending is expected to double over the next decade, reaching $2.1 trillion
  3. While world-wide long-haul international travel grew by 40% between 2000 and 2010, the US market share of long-haul travel dropped from 17% in 2000 to 12% during the same timeframe
  4. Lagging overseas arrivals result in large part from a US visa application process that is perceived by potential business and leisure travelers as inefficient, time consuming, and inaccessible
  5. Removing the self-imposed barriers in the visa application process that currently discourage inbound international travel to the US would yield significant economic and public diplomacy benefits for the US
  6. Increased international travel to the US also achieves US foreign policy objectives by introducing foreign visitors to the US and to Americans, who are the US' best goodwill ambassadors.
