    Here is the response to a letter I sent to Congressman Tom McClintock – Republican – California on Border Security.

    Thank you for writing regarding border security and illegal immigration.

    America is a nation of immigrants. We are all either immigrants ourselves or we are the sons and daughters of immigrants. The Great Seal of the United States features the phrase “E Pluribus Unum,” meaning “from many, one.” From many nations we have created one great nation, the American nation.

    Illegal immigration undermines the process of legal immigration that makes our nation of immigrants possible. If we continue allowing illegal immigration, then legal immigration becomes pointless; the process of assimilation that our immigration laws assure breaks down, and the bonds of allegiance that hold a country like ours together begin to dissolve.

    Furthermore, our undefended and open borders create opportunities for our enemies to enter the United States undetected, presenting a major national security threat.

    For these reasons, I will continue supporting legal immigration at assimilable levels along with efforts to secure our borders.

    Again, thank you for contacting me. Please visit my website at http://mcclintock.house.gov to reach me regarding any issue that concerns you or your family.

    Sincerely,

    Tom
