NBPC Release Analysis of Sec. Clintons Immigration Reform Plan
Balancing the promise of America with the security of America must be central issue of Presidential Campaign (July 28, 2016) — Today, the NBPC added their voice and expertise to the critical issue of border security. The NBPC is calling on both candidates to use this presidential campaign to have a debate focused on the American people’s security, because that is what is at stake. NBPC President Brandon Judd stated, “The safety of our families, security of our communities, and the strength of our economy depends on our borders being protected and secured.”
Judd said, “Secretary Clinton has repeatedly announced that, if elected, she will deliver immigration reform in her first 100 days. Few will argue the system needs to be reformed. Although Mrs. Clinton fails to mention border security as part of her plan to reform the immigration system, it is critically important. The safety of our families, security of our communities, and the strength of our economy depends on our borders being protected and secured.” Judd added, “There is no bigger issue than border security. To attempt a serious debate during the parties, celebrations, and back slapping that traditionally follow presidential elections is unthinkable. The American people deserve to hear real tangible plans from both candidates detailing how they will balance the promise of America with the security of America. We cannot allow the American people to be shut out of this important conversation. The only way to ensure they have a voice is to make border security and immigration reform the central issue of the 2016 Presidential election.”
