New National Security Strategy Eyes Boosting Border Security and Immigration
In a break from Obama administration policies, President Trump unveiled a national security doctrine which has a strong focus on reforming the immigration system.“Strengthening control over our borders and immigration system is central to national security, economic prosperity, and the rule of law,” declares the National Security Strategy released today.Congress requires every administration lay out its guiding principles of foreign policy and national security doctrine.“The United States affirms its sovereign right to determine who should enter our country and under what circumstances. The United States understands the contributions immigrants have made to our nation throughout its history. Illegal immigration, however, burdens the economy, hurts American workers, presents public safety risks, and enriches smugglers and other criminals,” the strategy asserts.The National Security Strategy is centered on four vital national interests:
- Protect the homeland, the American people, and American way of life;
- Promote American prosperity;
- Preserve peace through strength; and
- Advance American influence.
