Vitter tackles hot issues during visit
Quickly, the topic of immigration, especially as it relates to Mexico, took the forefront.
Several residents expressed concerns over the rising number of illegal immigrants flooding Texas and now Louisiana.
“We need border security,” Vitter said. “We can’t just talk about it.”
Vitter said it is estimated that there are 12 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S. He said that although the majority of those illegal immigrants living in the U.S. are not violent criminals, they are a burden on our justice system.
