"Existing law" was changed in 2008
"Existing law right now requires 700 miles of double-layered border fencing" on the Mexico border.
A broad estimate
Forty percent of illegal immigrants are "people coming legally on visas and overstaying their visas."
Focus shifts to border
"The actual deportations from the interior of the country are way down" under President Obama.
Wrong on a number of fronts
Every illegal immigrant "can be eligible for up to $36,000 to $38,000 in earned income tax credits without paying a dime in."
"The President has decided to move forward with executive actions on immigration that he has said on numerous occasions that he didn’t have the constitutional power to take."
But Obama's action is more sweeping
"Every president since Eisenhower has taken executive action to address immigration issues."
Wants strong border, more visas
On immigration reform
Tour de farce
U.S. Reps. Eric Cantor and Luis Gutierrez were "touring the country last year … joined at the hip, working together in a bipartisan fashion indeed for the goal of immigration reform."
Says a "liberal" immigration reform group endorsed his GOP primary opponent, Dave Brat.
We know that now
"Did you know US population growth is at its lowest since the Great Depression?"
FBI and State Police stats tell different story
Prince William County "has cut violent crime in half" since instituting a crackdown on illegal immigration.
