Bill Lee on Immigration

 

 


Benefits for illegal immigrants is the wrong strategy

Q: Support DACA, allowing "Dreamers" who arrived illegally as children, then grew up in the US, to achieve legal status if meet certain conditions?

Karl Dean (D): Yes. Congress should figure out a solution to retain DACA. Favors in-state tuition for DACA recipients: "They grew up here and went to school and church here. They are Tennesseans."

Bill Lee (R): No. "Setting up additional benefits for illegal immigrants is the wrong strategy." Opposes in-state tuition for DACA recipients.

Q: Immigration: Support path to citizenship for America's 11 million illegal immigrants?

Karl Dean (D): Yes. Supports earned path to citizenship.

Bill Lee (R): No.

Build the border wall built and forbid sanctuary cities

The governor's first duty is to Secure the public & Enforce the rule of law. That's why we will never have sanctuary cities when I'm Governor. The Wall - You can't have a nation without borders. Our leaders need to follow through on their promise to build the wall, and we'll do what the President needs us to do to secure the border. Sanctuary Cities - They're illegal, and by definition they encourage lawlessness. They won't happen when I'm governor.
