Republican Donald Trump recently held a roundtable of top campaign officials and allies to discuss national security policy. Two conservative Republican congressmen from Pennsylvania—Tom Marino and Lou Barletta—took part.
Barletta in particular is known as a hard-liner on immigration.
As mayor of Hazelton—which he now represents in Congress—he led a broad, controversial crackdown on illegal immigrants, penalizing businesses that hired them and landlords who rented to them.
He said he and Trump share a similar vision for national immigration policy.
