Senator David Perdue: President Trump Is Right On Immigration

“It’s time to fix our broken immigration system and prioritize the security of the American people.”

ATLANTA, GA – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Trump’s priorities for fixing the United States’ broken immigration system:

“For the first time in decades, we have a President who is serious about securing our borders and protecting our national security. The United States’ current immigration policies encourage illegal immigration. President Trump is right – we’ve got to close loopholes, build the wall along the southern border, and move to a merit-based immigration system that’s pro-growth and pro-worker. Earlier this year, we had an opportunity to tackle these immigration problems, but unfortunately, Senate Democrats chose to play politics rather than find a real solution. It’s time to fix our broken immigration system and prioritize the security of the American people.”

Senator Perdue has been working to fix our broken immigration system since he came to the United States Senate. He has introduced three targeted bills: the RAISE ActSECURE Act, and Secure and Succeed Act.
