America is the melting pot of the world. We have people from every culture and ethnicity here, making our nation the most diverse and accepting. People immigrate here because of the tremendous freedoms and opportunities America offers. In order to preserve our liberty, we welcome all immigrants through a legal process to become our fellow citizens. 

Illegal immigration breeds drugs, crime, and human trafficking. US immigration laws should be enforced at all levels government-federal, state, county, and municipality. President Biden’s reckless, open-border policy has increased illegal immigration endangers our local communities, and emboldens the cartels. Utah must follow and enforce federal immigration laws regardless of who’s in the White House. 

As your senator, I will vote for and sponsor legislation that supports legal immigration, strengthens enforcement, increases cooperation with our federal partners, prevents sanctuary cities, and removes government policy that incentivizes illegal immigration.
