Senator David Perdue: President Trump’s Immigration Priorities Are Spot On

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the immigration priorities outlined by President Trump:

"The immigration priorities President Trump has outlined are spot on. For years, we've needed to beef up border security, clear out the court backlogs, and crack down on cities blatantly ignoring current law. We have also been focused on the RAISE Act, which ends chain-migration and moves us to a merit-based system that meets the needs of our economy. Overall, the President has outlined a good list of priorities to fix our immigration system, which hasn't been done in over 30 years."
