While Tennessee has always welcomed the best and brightest minds from all over the world to legally move within our borders, the effects of illegal immigration cannot be ignored. The Obama Administration has shown no interest in getting tough on the illegal immigration problem, and has even taken action to punish states like Arizona and Alabama for simply enforcing existing federal immigration laws. Our economy and our society can no longer afford to provide benefits for those who have shown no regard for the laws of our country.
Rep. Casada has been a consistent voice for promoting reforms aimed at cracking down on the forces that attract illegal immigrants to our state.
- Maintain the ban on issuing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens
- Require employers to verify the citizenship status of their employees
- Ensure state and local police agencies notify federal immigration authorities when they believe an arrested criminal is an illegal alien
