Press Release - Jon on Border Security
Jon believes that before we spend our blood and treasure securing the Afghan border, we ought to secure our own.
Washington's repeated failure to secure our border is a national embarrassment. For decades the American people have been promised a safe and secure border, and for decades it hasn't happened. Violence and drug trafficking is rampant. Jon's first priority, before any immigration reforms are even considered, is to secure the southwest border, once and for all.
