Senator Hyde-Smith believes the federal government’s first responsibility is defense of the American people, which includes securing the nation’s borders.  She is a strong proponent of strengthening border security and the enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.  The Senator does not believe in rewarding those who enter the country illegally.

The Senator supports the implementation of a nationwide E-Verify system to ensure a legal workforce and enable American jobs to be filled by legal American workers.
