    NE-Fisher will not support pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants

    Fischer will not support pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants



    U.S. Senator Deb Fischer says she cannot support an immigration reform proposal that has a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. A bi-partisan immigration reform proposal from a group of eight Senators and President Obama's proposal both include a method for the undocumented immigrants to meet certain requirements to be citizens.

    Fischer says while she is reserving judgement until she sees legislative language, she made it clear to reporters during her weekly conference call she cannot support a pathway to citizenship for people illegally in the country.

    Fischer said, "We have a country that always supports the rule of law. Until we have undocumented immigrants stepping forward, we don't know who is in this country."

    Fischer added." nce we start that process of some kind of legal status to have people in the country, we are going to have to deport people who are criminals."

    Fischer said she was pleased the proposals do stress border security as one of their chief priorities.

    Dear Jane Doe,

    Thank you for contacting me about immigration reform.

    As a U.S. Senator, my highest priority is the national security of the United States, and illegal immigration poses a threat to our security. Currently, there are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. with no record of who they are or what they may have brought into the country. To ensure security for our citizens, we must secure our borders and enforce the laws we have in place.

    The federal government’s failure to act has forced states and cities to carry the burden with limited means. This is unacceptable. Congress needs to step up and make the tough decisions needed to secure our border, stop illegal immigration and reform our current legal immigration system.

    I will fight for the enforcement of our laws and oppose attempts to reward illegal actions, just as I did for the State of Nebraska as a State Senator. I do not support amnesty for anyone who entered this country illegally.

    In the upcoming weeks, Congress will consider solutions to the current immigration problems. Please be assured that I have taken record of your views, and will keep them in mind going forward.

    I appreciate your taking the time to share your views with me. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please let me know or visit my website at www.fischer.senate.gov

    Sincerely,



    Deb Fischer
    United States Senator
