At two years old, Ben and his mother escaped Communist Cuba and came to America with only one piece of luggage to their name. Ben’s father, who earlier escaped Cuba, through hard work and ingenuity was able to pay for his wife and son to get to America. As a naturalized citizen with a background in national security, Ben knows we have work to do to reform our immigration system. As a son of legal immigrants, he understands that America’s free market system is the best in the world. We have to streamline our immigration to allow for economic growth. We need to have an immigration system that is effective, uses the most current technology available, and rewards immigrants who want to come here legally. We also need to enforce the rule of law. In Congress, Ben will advocate for an increased physical border, support our ICE agents, and push for an overhaul of our current immigration process.
