The Problem:  The United States’ immigration policy is broken and insufficiently enforced. The number of illegal immigrants in the country has increased by more than 40% in the past decade. Each year, more than half a million illegal aliens cross our borders.

  • Secure Our Borders
  • Overhaul Our Immigration System
  • Remove Incentives to Enter Illegally
  • Deny Social Benefits and Driver Licenses to Illegal Immigrants
  • Stand by Workplace Enforcement Legislation

Secure Our Borders

In an age of terrorism, the United States cannot afford to have porous borders. Other measures to fight illegal immigration cannot be effectively addressed until we first secure our borders. Jeff Dial advocates additional border patrol agents, fencing, infrastructure and technology on the border. Bottom line: Action is needed not more words. We need to prevent terrorists and illegal aliens from entering our country. The safety and well-being of Arizona families depends on it.

Overhaul Our Immigration System

The immigration system in this country is broken. Living in a border state, Arizonans particularly feel the financial burden, crime and other problems caused by illegal immigration. Jeff Dial believes our existing immigration laws need to be strongly enforced and that our immigration policy is in need of substantial reform.  Hard-working legal immigrants who obey our laws and who faithfully follow the naturalization process face years of bureaucratic red tape and burdensome fees while illegal immigrants are too often given a free pass. This is a backwards approach to immigration.

Jeff Dial supports an immigration system that honors and favors those individuals who obey our immigration laws and who possess the skills, work ethic and motivation to achieve better lives for themselves and make America stronger.  At the same time, new immigrants should be required to learn English and language instruction courses should be available to all who need it. A common language is crucial to uniting a country, and that is why Jeff Dial believes English should be the official language of the United States.

Remove Incentives to Enter Illegally

Illegal immigrants should not be entitled to social benefits paid for by Arizona taxpayers. Nor should they have access to Arizona driver licenses. Jeff Dial believes hard-earned taxpayer money that pays for social programs, such as healthcare and welfare, should not be given to those who reside in our country illegally.

Jeff Dial will also support legislation that removes incentives to enter the country illegally by cracking down on employers who knowingly hire illegal immigrants. There are better solutions for helping businesses lawfully meet their labor needs.
