Republican candidate for Iowa's 1st Congressional District, Rod Blum

The Republican candidate for Iowa’s first congressional district, Rod Blum, says we need to stop the flow of undocumented immigrants into the U.S. 

Blum says we need to secure the southern border.

Blum doesn’t see the children crossing the US/Mexican border as refugees. He says he supports enforcing our current immigration laws, returning undocumented children to their home countries and reforming how the U.S. handles work visas.

Blum is a businessman from Dubuque.  You can hear the full interview from River to River below.
