I agree with Governor Dan Malloy that it is wrong to place a burden on local budgets, emergency services, and schools because the President and Congress refuse to enforce our laws and politicize important issues like national security and securing our borders.
If I were the current member of Congress I would deal with the immediate crisis confronting our country- a crisis created by President Obama and Congress- and immediately work on securing our border.
I would work to set up locations in these countries so that our government would be able to process requests for those looking to come to our great country in a legal manner. Every day that Esty, Obama, and Congress refuse to deal with the crisis, more people embark on this perilous journey.
Once again, I call on Esty to tell voters in CT5 what her plan to deal with the influx of illegal immigrants across our southern border is. To hide behind polls or the term 'comprehensive immigration reform' in order to avoid taking a stand on a difficult issue is not what we send people to Congress to do.
