Manchester, NH -- The following quotes by Dan Innis, Republican candidate for Congress in NH-01, appeared in the Concord Monitor on July 18th.
In an interview with the Monitor, Innis said the country must start sending back some of the people flooding over the borders. He said immigration reform should be handled one piece at a time, not in a comprehensive bill. Securing the border and making legal immigration easier should be the top priorities, he said.
"People come illegally because they think it's impossible to do it legally," he said. "I'd much rather they see some hope to do it legally."
He does not support a path to citizenship for immigrants who are already here. Beyond fixing the crisis at the border, Innis said the U.S. should work with Central American countries facing humanitarian issues so that people do not feel the need to flee here.
