National Guard and fences on the border
Q: How do we accomplish border security?
A: I think the President’s decision to send National Guard troops to our southern border was a good first start. But we need more than manpower. We should build physical barriers such as fences and walls where
necessary. We cannot grant amnesty to those who are here illegally. The rule of law must prevail. We should not offer special privileges like in-state college tuition to people here illegally. We must insist on assimilation.
