Immigration

f t # e
 

Illegal immigration continues to be a serious problem in Arkansas and across our country.  Our system is broken, and now is the time for Congress to act.  Any solution must secure our border and encourage lawful behavior. 

Over the past couple of years, we have only seen the issue worsen as evidenced by sanctuary cities deliberately disregarding the rule of law. I continue to believe that we must secure the border and develop a long-term immigration policy that encourages lawful behavior.

I will continue to support programs like Section 287(G) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act which allows police officers to receive specialized training from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.  As the mayor of Rogers, I saw firsthand how valuable this tool was in ensuring the safety of citizens in the community.
