Independent candidate for U.S. Senate Gordon Howie says the nation should not be talking about immigration reform until it secures its border.
The former state lawmaker from Rapid City says there may be many secondary problems regarding immigration, but the U.S. must stop the flood of illegal immigration into the country.
Howie, former Republican Gov. Mike Rounds, Democrat Rick Weiland and independent Larry Pressler are seeking the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Tim Johnson.
President Barack Obama this week asked Congress for $3.7 billion in emergency spending to get more resources to the border. The funding would increase detention, care and transportation of unaccompanied children, help speed the removal of adults with children by increasing the capacity of immigration courts and increase prosecution of smuggling networks.
