​STATEMENT FROM DR. KELLI WARD ON WHITE HOUSE IMMIGRATION FRAMEWORK PROPOSAL

“The White House cannot fall into the trap laid by amnesty politicians like Sen. Jeff Flake and Rep. Martha McSally of Arizona. The need to secure America's southern border and end the inducements leading to illegal immigration is now more important than ever. For this reason, I respectfully but strongly disagree with the White House’s immigration framework.”

“Nothing should be on the table until the border is fully secured, otherwise, we will find ourselves in this same situation again in a few years. In granting amnesty in 1986, President Reagan trusted Congress to secure the border, which they failed to follow through on. This time, we must ensure the border is secured first.”

“I stand by my proposal that only temporary status should be on the negotiating table until five clear steps are completed: funding and construction of the border wall, ending the visa lottery system, eliminating chain migration, defunding sanctuary cities, and instituting a mandatory e-verify system.”

“I certainly appreciate the president’s sincere desire to get a deal done, but he was elected largely on this issue, and I am confident that if he remains firm on what he campaigned on, he can achieve the reform we need without planting the seeds for future immigration problems.”
