"putting more boots on the southern border than at any time in our history, and reducing illegal crossings to their lowest levels in 40 years."

"And real reform means fixing the legal immigration system to cut waiting periods, reduce bureaucracy, and attract the highly-skilled entrepreneurs and engineers that will help create jobs and grow our economy."
