Explain your position on U.S. immigration policy.

Chip Roy

21st District


The rule of law matters. Our security and our sovereignty matters. Right now, we have criminal illegal gangs like MS-13 operating in sanctuary cities across our nation while drug cartels have effective operational control over our southern border. We must secure and establish operational control on our border and protect against the cartels and gangs.  In the process, we will protect the very immigrants that are harmed by open borders – currently subjected to the horrors of the sex trafficking trade and riding on top of train cars because we fail to do our job.
