Mark Kennedy on Immigration
Republican Representative (MN-6)
KLOBUCHAR: I believe we need to have order. We need to have adequate border controls, the fence, & no amnesty for companies hiring illegal immigrants; as well as earned citizenship.
KENNEDY: Ms. Klobuchar came out first for a bill that had nothing in there for a fence. I [didn't agree with that bill] that we should give a veto right to Mexico to control our border.
KLOBUCHAR: For 6 years, this Congressman and this Congress had the ability to do something about immigration. We need comprehensive immigration reform. It hasn't happened. The Fargo Forum debunked his claims on my stands on immigration, and said they were distorted and not true.
KENNEDY: We have passed 700-mile fencing along the border. I believe that good fences make good neighbors. We've doubled the border patrol; we've ended catch-and-release. We have more to do, but it begins with a conviction that a country that can't control its own borders can't control its own security.
