Waltz ran for Congress on a bipartisan platform of getting results.  He supported efforts to offer DACA recipients a pathway to citizenship in return for increased border funding.  Waltz believes that our nation is in desperate need of a long-term solution to both fully secure our borders and tackle long-overdue legal immigration reform.
