The recent death of Mollie Tibbets has reignited calls for increased border security, with supporters of such measures citing the social costs of illegal immigration. But while one could argue endlessly on the social impact of illegal immigration, the reality is that illegal immigrants commit fewer violent crimes than natural citizens. The rare social consequences of the practice alone will not be enough for Congress to approve measures for additional border security. The economic consequences of the practice, on the other hand, are more than enough to justify further investments to try to curb it. Strengthening our porous borders would prevent illegal immigrants from robbing Americans of billions of dollars each year through the use of government services and by driving down wages.

NJ-7, a centrist district in the suburbs of New Jersey, tends to lean Republican but has voted Democrat in the past. In 2016, for example, Hillary Clinton won the district by 1.5%. Since 2008, Republican Leonard Lance has represented the district; however, the incumbent has faced a tightly contested re-election campaign due to the district’s distaste in President Trump and shifting demographics.
In the upcoming house election between Lance and Malinowski, moderation has become the biggest issue concerning the ace. Voters have made it clear they want a representative who puts the district views first even if it means crossing party lines.
