1 - All persons
born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of
the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce
any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of

- Nor have We
been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have
warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature
to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have
reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and
settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and
magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common
kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably
interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been
deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must,
therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our
Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind,
Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

- Customs and
Border Patrol who police our borders;
and Customs Enforcement in ensuring that the identity of foreign
citizens who enter our borders is known;
- Our nation has
been enriched by immigrants seeking a better life. In many cases,
immigrants of the past fled violence and oppression searching for
peace and freedom. All suffered and sacrificed but hoped for a
better future for their children in America. Our nation has been
enriched by their determination, energy, and diversity. Ensuring the
integrity of our borders is vital to ensuring the safety of our
citizens. We must know the identity of all visitors who enter the
United States, and we must know when they leave. The US-VISIT
system, which uses biometric data to better track the entry and exit
of foreign travelers, has been implemented at more than 115 airports
and is presently being implemented at land border crossings.
Reconnaissance cameras, border patrol agents, and unmanned aerial
flights have all been increased at our borders. We must strengthen
our Border Patrol to stop illegal crossings, and we will equip the
Border Patrol with the tools, technologies, structures, and
sufficient force necessary to secure the border. We will seek stiff
penalties for those who smuggle illegal aliens into the country and
for those who sell fraudulent documents. We urge continued support
for state, local, and federal law enforcement to work in a cohesive
manner in securing our borders to prevent illegal entry.
- Neighborhood of the
believe that it is a high national priority for America to continue
building on that cooperation with Mexico over the coming years to
ensure safe, orderly, and legal migration flows; further reduce the
cost of remittances; expand access to credit for small business
entrepreneurs; and further strengthen bilateral ties in education,
civil society, housing, agriculture, infrastructure, communications,
and information technologies.
- Since the tragic
events of September 11, 2001, the United States has received
excellent cooperation from our hemispheric partners to combat terror
in North America. In particular, our longstanding allies Canada and
Mexico have been steadfast partners in joint efforts to enhance
border security, while ensuring that the swift pace of legal
movement of people and goods along our land borders is maintained.
- Supporting Humane
and Legal Immigration
Party supports reforming the immigration system to ensure that it is
legal, safe, orderly and humane. It also supports measures to ensure
that the immigration system is structured to address the needs of
national security. America is a stronger and better nation because
of the hard work and entrepreneurial spirit of immigrants, and the
Republican Party honors them. A growing economy requires a growing
number of workers, and President Bush has proposed a new temporary
worker program that applies when no Americans can be found to fill
the jobs. This new program would allow workers who currently hold
jobs to come out of the shadows and to participate legally in
America's economy. It would allow men and women who enter the
program to apply for citizenship in the same manner as those who
apply from outside the United States. There must be strong workplace
enforcement with tough penalties against employees and employers who
violate immigration laws. We oppose amnesty because it would have
the effect of encouraging illegal immigration and would give an
unfair advantage to those who have broken our laws.
- To better ensure
that immigrants enter the United States only through legal means
that allow for verification of their identity, reconnaissance
cameras, border patrol agents, and unmanned aerial flights have all
been increased at the border. In addition, Border Patrol agents now
have sweeping new powers to deport illegal aliens without having
first to go through the cumbersome process of allowing the illegal
alien to have a hearing before an immigration judge. We support
these efforts to enforce the law while welcoming immigrants who
enter America through legal avenues.
