Doug Jones on Immigration

 

 


Opposes funding a border wall; supports comprehensive reform

Q: Would you support a deal that fixes DACA, that protects the so-called DREAMers, but on the other hand has tougher border enforcement and includes some money for continuing to build President Trump's wall?

JONES: I have said before that I opposed the building of a wall. I think that's an expense that the taxpayers just don't have to incur because I do think you can increase border security without having to go to the incredible expense of building that wall, at least the figures that I've seen. I do support the DACA program and would love to see that extended. I hope there can be some bipartisan efforts reached to do that. Immigration has been one of the toughest political footballs going on up there right now and we've had bills in the past that just fell by the wayside because of politics. If there's comprehensive immigration, I think it's going to be very complicated. But it's something that I would love to look at.

Dreamers should be allowed to stay

I support the DACA program and would support legislation to ensure young people brought here as children who have never known any other nation can remain in the United States. Children and young adults in the DACA program are contributing members of our society, serving in the military and owning businesses that employ Americans.
