Tom Del Beccaro on Immigration

 

 


Immigration is a national security issue; ports are a danger

Our broken immigration system has been bad for the country and a source of political division for well over a decade. Tom proposes a more practical approach:
  1. National Security: Immigration should now be viewed as the national security issue it has become. We can build a consensus on immigration by putting the interests of the entire country first.
  2. Comprehensive Legislation Won't Work: 2,500 page bills are unlikely to pass and have proven to be a Pandora's box of bad provisions and policy. Therefore, Tom believes we need to take a piecemeal approach to solving the crisis.
  3. Immediate Visa Reform. Up to half of those here illegally have overstayed their visas. We can reduce racial tension in this country by acknowledging that fact instead of implying all illegal immigration is from a single country.
  4. All Ports of Entry. We must understand that all of our ports of entry represent a danger. Therefore, we need to bring added resources to protect all of them not some of them.

Expose crime and danger at the US-Mexico border

Del Beccaro is urging congressional Republicans to convene a Southwestern summit to "expose the real crime and danger" at the U.S.-Mexico border and work with allies and adversaries on an immigration deal. And he said he disagrees with a recent comments by [his Democratic opponent Kamala] Harris that "an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal."

"If you break the law, that means you've broken the law," Del Beccaro said, taking issue with the question about Harris.

"My focus is more about how to bring people to the table," he added. "I am not running so I can say, `Some people are wrong and some people are right.' I am going to be very specific in this campaign about solutions as opposed to just politics and yelling back and forth."
