Explain your position on U.S. immigration policy.

Mike Ryan

10th District


People immigrating to the USA must do it legally. We should build the wall to keep out criminals who would harm our families. The number one role of the government is to keep us safe. I would make e-verify and background checks mandatory with two new provisions. The guest workers’ employers must pay for their health insurance so they are not a burden on taxpayers; this currently bankrupts hospitals! I would add a provision that guest workers will NEVER have a path to citizenship; two separate processes. These are critical national security and immigration issues for us all.
