The foreign policy power, found in Article I and Article II of the U.S. Constitution, gives the Federal government the power to regulate our immigration procedures. For many years, Polo has warned the Federal authorities about the potential national security implications of having an open border that permits foreign Nicaraguan, Venezuelan, and Cuban intelligence agents to freely come to operate inside our borders.

As an Immigrant himself, Polo understands the need for immigration reform and he will fight to make this a reality. However, Polo also understands that any talking about immigration reform must happen after our border is secured. Furthermore, we have immigration laws that our current administration is instructing agencies to ignore, and that is unacceptable.

Legal immigration and expeditious processing of legal immigrants should be encouraged. Polo blames the current administration for encouraging lawless behavior and exposing kids and women to the horrors of trafficking, sexual abuse, and sexual exploitation.

Once the border is secured, to prevent any party from using our immigrants as a voting trophy, any proposal for immigration reform must be with the express removal of the right to vote in consideration for obtaining all other benefits associated with the legalization.

The left’s argument about the right to vote as an absolute right for U.S. Citizens, to justify voting without ID, is baseless and frivolous. The Federal and State governments cannot infringe on the right to vote only in limited circumstances. Since the enactment of the 14th Amendment, the U.S. Constitution has been amended four more times to prohibit states from denying the right to vote based on race, color, or previous condition of servitude (15th), sex (19th), failure to pay poll tax (24th), and age, 18 years and older (26th). No other enumerated factors are preventing the Federal or State governments from removing the right to vote based on other conditions. Therefore, limiting the right to vote to those with proper ID, and those who crossed the border illegally is not a violation of any constitutional right.

No constitutional provision asserts that there is a right to vote. The existing provisions assert that the states cannot deny the right to vote based on the above-mentioned criteria.

We must FINISH THE WALL & SECURE OUR BORDER to protect America from our foreign enemies.
