On immigration: "When I was in office, I worked with important allies and, for a period of time, shut down illegal immigration. As Governor, I intend to finish the fight by sealing the border, stopping illegal immigration once and for all, and driving the drug and human trafficking cartels back into Mexico. And frankly, I don't much care how various 'communities' respond to these efforts."
"I would retain Gov. Brewer's executive order, but I believe far more needs to be done to end our government's unofficial toleration of rampant illegal immigration. We cannot feed and clothe anybody who manages to break into our state. We were winning this fight when I was in office, and now we are losing. It's time to start winning again."
