Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Additional comment from candidate:

I have no answer to question 3 concerning the building of a wall on the border. It would seem to me that history tells us that a border wall can be used both ways; Not only to keep people out, but also keep people in. I am a strong advocate that we must define our security at our borders or loose our freedom within our borders. We should know who is coming in, how long they will be here, what they are doing while they are here, and their health status. We should use a private company to insure that an e-verify system is in place and operable. This would insure that migrant workers could be employed and that our employers were hiring eligible workers. Securing the borders must happen. However, sacrificing the principles of American freedom to do so by walling ourselves in, seems to be extreme. Would the wall be built on Northern and Southern borders? What will we do with our ports? People enter illegally there as well. This subject needs greater thought.
