Virtual Hearing on Immigration - Secure Borders First

Rep. Thomas Brinkman
Attorney General Mike DeWine

July 11, 2006

As part of's virtual hearing on immigration reform, I want to share my views on this important issue.
Of course the borders must be secured against illegal entry. This should have been done years ago.
Secondly, Anyone who is in this country illegally must be deported. Those who entered properly, and paid the price of admission would demand it.
There is no need to do one thing before the other, but they must be done simultaneously. It is understood that it won't be easy, or rapid to deport all the illegals in the country. But as they are detected they should be removed immediately. On that note, there should be a vigorous effort to find them, not just to wait and see how many turn up routinely.
