Gang related violence and crime is now plaguing our State so regardless of who is here whether legally or illegally we must know who is living around us. As a father of a fifteen-year-old son, husband for sixteen years to my wife Kristie, and caregiver to a family member affected by Down syndrome, I believe we must protect everyone especially those most vulnerable. I am sure most of us lock our own doors at night. We do this not because we hate our neighbors but because we need to know exactly who it is looking to enter and we need to avoid any danger that may exist. It becomes extremely difficult to protect the public and our loved ones if we do not have any idea of who exactly is in our midst.
