BLACKBURN: I support the President's goals and his plan on immigration. He is right to require Congress to get in there and figure out this entry/exit program and how our visas are issued. 40% of those who are illegally in the country are here because they have overstayed a visa. So, the American people, for a variety of reasons, have said "Let's secure this southern border." Yes, part of it will be a wall. Part of it is probably going to be increased surveillance. Part of it is going to be other technology. The good thing is, the Border Patrol is leading a lot of this discussion. Saying this is what we need. We in Congress need to give the Border Patrol what they see they need. What they tell us they need in order to secure that southern border.
