Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart

Representing the 25th District of FLORIDA

Immigration

This is a nation of immigrants, built by immigrants. Thus, I am strongly committed to promoting fair, legal, and humane immigration policies which also take into account the contribution of immigrants to this great country of ours. 

We need comprehensive immigration reform. We need to strengthen our border security, and we need to address the immigration issues inside our borders. One without the other will resolve nothing.
