Republican Dusty Johnson says tighter security is needed but isn't the only way to keep borders secure and Democrat Tim Bjorkman says the wall is not the way and a humane method of border security is what this country needs.

Dusty Johnson, Republican U.S. House candidate says, " We have got to get border security right then I think we need to follow the president's lead on a lot of these other immigration reforms. Things like ending the visa lottery, things like cutting down on the worst abuses of chain migration, and moving towards a more merit-based system. If we do that, our immigration system can continue to be a source of real strength for this country."

Tim Bjorkman, Democrat U.S. House candidate says, "The idea of a continuous 2000-mile border wall is a 14th-century solution to a 21st-century problem. We need to use smart fences, we need to beef up our security, and we need to enforce our laws. I'm for strong enforcement, holding employers who hire illegals accountable, for tightening our border patrol."
