Legal immigration helped make our country great and continues to be an important ingredient in our nation’s growth. This should be controlled with proper vetting to ensure that all immigrants who are granted entry wish our nation well and believe that America is and should always remain the land of the free and the home of the brave. Illegal immigration and the inability to secure our nation’s borders are a threat to our security, and South Carolina must do what it can to pressure the Federal Government to uphold the security of our borders. Immigrants who do not love our Country, respect our laws, and are unwilling to learn our language should not be allowed in. Our State should have fought against the Syrian Refugee Resettlement Program.
