Mark Ronchetti on Immigration

 

 


Against amnesty, close the asylum loophole

We must secure our southern border through a wide variety of methods from barriers, to drones, to additional border staff. We must close the asylum-loophole that is creating a crisis at the border by encouraging migrants to come to the United States and claim asylum when they do not qualify. Mark supports legal immigration but opposes amnesty. Those seeking citizenship should do so the right way, and those who break the law shouldn't be allowed to "jump the line."

Eliminate sanctuary city laws around the country

Mark supports measures to eliminate sanctuary city laws around the country that allow illegal immigrants who commit crimes to be released back into our communities, rather than being deported.

Amnesty incentivizes even more illegal immigration

I oppose amnesty because it incentivizes even more illegal immigration. Decriminalizing border crossing and dangling free health care encourages well-meaning families to put their families at risk by illegally entering the country. Allow them to apply in their home country and when legally approved move to the U.S. Our borders are not secure enough and we need a barrier, more staffing or increased air patrol for a more secure border. Sanctuary cities in New Mexico exacerbate our crime problems.

Opposes illegal immigration and sanctuary cities

I oppose amnesty. Decriminalizing border crossing and dangling free health care encourages well-meaning families to put their families at risk by illegally entering the country. Allow them to apply in their home country and when legally approved move to the US. Our borders are not secure. We need a barrier and more border patrol officers. Abolishing ICE is a terrible idea. New Mexico is a drug superhighway into the US, which brings crime--exacerbated by sanctuary city policies.
