State of Arkansas Archives: on Immigration


Conner Eldridge: Pathway to legal status but no amnesty

Conner's plan for comprehensive immigration reform: We have a proud legacy of welcoming people who seek the American Dream. However, we must fix our broken immigration system, take immediate action to secure our borders and pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation.

Curtis Coleman: 100% opposed to amnesty in any form or by any mechanism

I am 100% opposed to amnesty. I will not vote for any piece of legislation that grants amnesty, or ones that fund amnesty in any form or by any mechanism. We must secure our border first, above all else.

Bruce Westerman: Control the borders, then implement guest worker program

Subsequent to establishing and maintaining operational control of the border, Congress should look at any reforms through a careful, step-by-step, process that establishes benchmarks to be met before the next step is taken, encourages lawful immigration, prevents illegal immigration, and does not include amnesty.
