Jan 25, 2017 Issues: Immigration

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today commended President Trump on his decision to issue executive orders on securing the southern border and enforcing immigration laws, saying the actions are a positive first step toward addressing the nation’s illegal immigration problem.
 
“President Trump’s executive orders today represent a positive first step toward getting control of our illegal immigration problem through enhancing border security and cutting off the magnet of sanctuary cities.
 
“We need to have immigration policies that put American’s interests first and discourage people from entering the country illegally. For too long, we’ve had the opposite.
 
“I look forward to advancing policies that will help secure the border, stop illegal immigration, and prevent human trafficking through my work on the Judiciary and Appropriations Committees.”
