DALLAS — Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes, issues the following statement in support of President Trump’s proposals for securing the border and introducing merit-based immigration reform:
“We know we have an illegal immigration problem, and we need serious and comprehensive steps taken to address the foundational issues in both securing the border and fixing the immigration process.
“For too long, we have played political games with immigration policy. We’re thankful for the bold leadership of the president. He truly is focused on the best interests of our citizens and those seeking to come to our nation legally.
“We are particularly encouraged by the president’s priorities to stop the flood of child smuggling, provide legitimate asylum to those who have been persecuted and are in the greatest need of our help, and close loopholes for criminals and gang members.”
