Mark Ronchetti: Against amnesty, close the asylum loophole

We must secure our southern border through a wide variety of methods from barriers, to drones, to additional border staff. We must close the asylum-loophole that is creating a crisis at the border by encouraging migrants to come to the United States and claim asylum when they do not qualify. Mark supports legal immigration but opposes amnesty. Those seeking citizenship should do so the right way, and those who break the law shouldn't be allowed to "jump the line."

Mark Ronchetti: Eliminate sanctuary city laws around the country

Mark supports measures to eliminate sanctuary city laws around the country that allow illegal immigrants who commit crimes to be released back into our communities, rather than being deported.

Mark Ronchetti: Amnesty incentivizes even more illegal immigration

I oppose amnesty because it incentivizes even more illegal immigration. Decriminalizing border crossing and dangling free health care encourages well-meaning families to put their families at risk by illegally entering the country. Allow them to apply in their home country and when legally approved move to the U.S. Our borders are not secure enough and we need a barrier, more staffing or increased air patrol for a more secure border. Sanctuary cities in New Mexico exacerbate our crime problems.

Ben Ray Lujan: Comprehensive immigration reform must be fair and just

Our immigration policies must be crafted with compassion, commonsense, and a sense of reality.

I have long-championed comprehensive immigration reform and have used my position as the highest-ranking Hispanic in Congress to give voice to the urgent need to address our broken immigration laws. Our immigration system must be fair and just, encourage legal immigration, and welcoming toward those of all backgrounds, religions, and races.

Ben Ray Lujan: Pathway to citizenship for DREAMers

I was proud to support the American Dream and Promise Act to provide security and a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers--the young individuals who are American in every way but on paper. We should advance policies that welcome DREAMers, TPS [Temporary Protected Status] recipients, migrants, and refugees because we know that our country is made better because of its diversity.

Gavin Clarkson: End birthright citizenship; oppose amnesty

My wife waited 14 years to become a citizen. Our immigration system is fundamentally broken. We must end birthright citizenship, visa lottery and chain migration. I oppose amnesty. Once the border is secure, I might consider a path to residency and possibly a path to citizenship for military veterans brought here illegally as children.

Our border is not secure. I support not just the wall, but a high-tech wall with monitoring equipment including motion detectors, infrared, and ground penetrating radar, all of which will need to be connected by high-speed optic fiber lines to command stations. Such infrastructure would also contribute to economic development.

Allow them to apply in their home country and when legally approved move to the US. Our borders are not secure. We need a barrier and more border patrol officers. Abolishing ICE is a terrible idea. New Mexico is a drug superhighway into the US, which brings crime--exacerbated by sanctuary city policies.

Michelle Lujan-Grisham: Withdraw troops from Mexican border: there's no emergency

Gov. Lujan Grisham has ordered the majority of National Guard troops deployed at her state's Southern border to withdraw, condemning what she called a "charade of border fear-mongering" by President Trump, who has warned of an immigration emergency in th region. "I reject the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the Southern border," Lujan Grisham said, adding that the area has "some of the safest communities in the country."

Lujan Grisham ordered the withdrawal just before Trump delivered his State of the Union address, in which he railed against illegal immigration and labeled a group of mainly Central American migrants as "illegal immigrants"--despite the fact that most of them are traveling with legal humanitarian visas.

Lujan Grisham rejected the idea that a national emergency exists along her state's border with Mexico. But she also said some troops will remain in southwestern NM, saying they're needed to fulfill a humanitarian mission.

Susana Martinez: Deploy National Guard troops on Mexican border

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has ordered the majority of National Guard troops deployed at her state's Southern border to withdraw, condemning what she called a "charade of border fear-mongering" by President Trump, who has warned of an immigration emergency in the region. "I reject the federal contention that there exists an overwhelming national security crisis at the Southern border," Lujan Grisham said, adding that the area has "some of the safest communities in the country."

The governor's order covers most of New Mexico's deployed troops, along with Guard members who have traveled from AR, KS, KY, NH, SC, and WI. In all, 118 National Guard troops have been deployed in New Mexico, the governor's office said.

New Mexico sent National Guard troops to the border last April in an order from then-Gov. Susana Martinez that followed a White House proclamation. At least five states, including two led by Republicans, rejected the president's call to send troops.

Gavin Clarkson: Oppose amnesty and path to citizenship, with exceptions

Q: Please give your position on DACA.

A: I do not support a path to citizenship, except for those who choose to honorably serve in the military. President Trump offered residency for all 1.8 million who qualify, not just the roughly 800,000 who applied, but Democrats are refusing to surrender the issue as a political wedge.

Q: Do you favor amnesty, a path to citizenship or worker permits for most or all of the people now living illegally in the U.S.? Who do you think should be deported?

A: Deportation should be for those here illegally who have committed additional crimes. I oppose amnesty. I believe in the rule of law and fairness for legal immigrants who followed the rules. I am willing to consider a path to residency for those who will not burden our social welfare systems.

Gavin Clarkson: I support not just the wall, but a high-tech wall

Q: Do you believe the borders are secure enough? If not, what do you propose should be done to increase their security? Do you support Trump's proposal to build a $25 billion wall?

A: I support not just the wall, but a high-tech wall, which will promote economic development in southern New Mexico. The wall needs high-tech monitoring equipment like motion detectors, infrared, and ground penetrating radar, all of which will need to be monitored at command stations linked by high-speed optic fiber lines.

Q: What's your position on skills-based immigration vs. family-based?

A: I would end chain-migration and the visa lottery. Merit-based work permits give folks everything they might want economically, except for the one thing that Democrats really seem to care about, which is naturalizing new voters.

Mick Rich: New policy on applicant merit, not family relationships

Q: What immigration policies do you support?

A: Secure our borders. Non-Citizens who break our laws and don't work or go to school cannot stay. Illegal immigrants that came before 2008 can obtain legal status, but they must exit the country and re-enter the country legally. DREAMers will receive legal status and can apply for citizenship with the legal immigrants seeking citizenship. A new legal immigration policy on applicant merit, not family relationships.

Jeff Apodaca: We're not deporting DACA kids or any other kids

Asked about immigration policy and the border wall being pursued by the Trump administration, Lujan Grisham cited her recent advocacy in Washington, both fighting against funding of the wall and advocating for Dreamers--young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children and gained temporary protection from deportation under an Obama administration policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

Both Cervantes and Apodaca spoke of the possibility of trade with New Mexico's southern neighbor, Cervantes calling the border with Mexico one of the state's greatest assets.

"There's no way we're going to deport or get rid of DACA kids or any other kids," Apodaca said.

Mick Rich: We can only accept so many immigrants, but let's negotiate

Rich was critical of Democrat leaders who walked out of immigration talks, following Trump's now infamous supposed labeling of many African nations as "sh--thole countries." "Martin Heinrich did nothing to move forward the immigration issues," Rich said.

Immigration is an essential issue to address at the federal level, Rich said. To him, immigrants don't just come for jobs, but to become Americans. "We're looking at this and saying the only people we're holding responsible for immigration issues are employers," Rich said. "We saw kids come here. They weren't coming for jobs, they were coming to live here. It's not just about jobs, it's about freedom."

There is a limit to how many immigrants should be allowed in the country, Rich said, and he said he is committed to negotiating the issue. We can only accept so many immigrants without making it so that nobody can be successful," he said. "It costs substantial funds to bring a person in in immigration. No enough funds are allocated per person."

Mick Rich: Border Patrol lacks manpower for drug import corridor

Last year, I traveled to Southwest New Mexico, to hear from New Mexicans that are in the drug import corridor. I learned that the Border Patrol do not patrol the last 25 miles of our state and our country. The Border Patrol stays on county paved roads. The Border Patrol has neither the manpower nor the desire to check when the electronic sensors on the surrounding hilltops are tripped. It did not need to be said: "If trouble comes, you are on your own. Because help is too far away."

Mick Rich: Wants immigration pattern stopped before considering pathway

Our country's generosity exceeds our resources to assimilate everyone who wants to immigrate here. Currently, illegal immigrants far outnumber legal immigrants--and we can't even properly vet our legal immigrants. Illegal immigrants who disobey our laws, disrespect our country, or intend to do us harm cannot be allowed to stay. Once our current immigration pattern is reversed, we can address the status of those illegal immigrants who have become responsible members of society.

The violence, drug and weapons smuggling, and human trafficking that plagues our border must be put to a stop. I am working to advocate human solutions that reflect the sensitivity of border security issues.

It is time that the federal government gives New Mexico the resources and solutions we need for a strong, secure border.

Bill Richardson: Driverís license for illegals helps public safety

Q: As governor, you signed a law making New Mexico one of only eight states in the country that allows illegal immigrants to get driverís licenses.

A: Four years ago, the legislature sent a bill to me and, at the request of my law enforcement leaders, I signed it, which allows licenses for undocumented workers. The reason I did this is because thereís a failure of an immigration law in the Congress and the president. Itís a matter for us in New Mexico of public safety on the roads. At the time that I signed the bill, 33% of drivers were uninsured. Today itís 11% uninsured. This law has helped.

Q: Is there any security provision in the law, anything, that prevents illegals from using these driverís licenses that you give them to get on airplanes, like many of the 9/11 terrorists did?

A: There are valid certificates of identification that they have to provide to the motor vehicles department of New Mexico. I believe itís the right decision for my people. What we need is comprehensive immigration

Q: Is it realistic to think that, in the environment after 9/11, that we could legalize undocumented immigrants in this country?

KUCINICH: One of the tragedies of 9/11 is that weíve forgotten who we are as a nation. In the fear thatís covered this country, weíve forgotten about the optimism and hope that led so many people to sail under that light of Lady Liberty.

Q: You introduced legislation for legalizing undocumented workers.

Q: There are communities in North Carolina that probably never imagined in 100 years that theyíd have to hire an English-as-a-second-language teacher or have bilingual classes.

EDWARDS: Let me say a word about my personal experience with this issue. I grew up in a family where my father worked in a mill all of his life. And when I was young, we moved to a small town in rural North Carolina, which is where I grew up. That town is now half Hispanic.

My family moved to that town because my father, who has a high school education and is still living, believed that by working hard and doing the right thing that his kids would have the opportunity for a better life. These Hispanic families? They came to Robbins, North Carolina, for exactly the same reason. And those who came and live there, who work hard and are responsible, they have earned the right to be American citizens.
