Jodey Arrington on Immigration
I will use every resource and tool necessary, including the deployment of our military, to secure the border. I will ensure that all of our laws are enforced and put an end to Sanctuary Cities. And I will strongly support Kate's Law to enforce mandatory minimum jail time for illegal immigrants who come back to America after being deported. You break our laws; you go to prison. Finally, I will cut off tax payer -funded services that incentivize the very behavior our immigration laws are trying to prevent.

The Project Vote Smart Voter Guide inferred how candidates would respond to the question, 'Immigration: Do you support requiring immigrants who are unlawfully present to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?' Project Vote Smart notes, "in response to the increasing unwillingness of candidates to answer issue questions, Project Vote Smart has researched Congressional candidates' public records to determine candidates' likely responses on certain key issues. These issue positions, from the year 2016, are provided [for candidates who] refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads."
