Immigration

The United States was founded on immigration and it was also founded on the rule of law. Congressman Scalise wants to secure the United States' borders with stronger security, including a border wall, and supports the Administration’s purposeful enforcement of existing laws.

Legal immigration has and always will be an integral part of our national identity.  However, our legal immigration processes must be respected and followed.  Congressman Scalise is opposed to giving amnesty to the millions of illegal immigrants currently living in our country. He does not want to reward those who have committed a crime. Amnesty programs will only encourage more illegal aliens to cross our borders and drain our nation's resources. In 1986, the federal government granted amnesty to illegal immigrants, and millions more illegal immigrants have crossed our borders since. Amnesty failed then, and it will fail now.
