Immigration continues to be a matter of great concern, both in Northeast Georgia and nationally. While debate continues concerning America’s long-term immigration policy, there should be no debate that current laws need to be enforced.Last week, the House adopted an amendment I authored concerning immigration enforcement. This important language prevents federal taxpayer dollars from going to any jurisdiction whose laws or policies obstruct federal immigration enforcement efforts.

My amendment addresses a serious issue that undermines federal immigration enforcement efforts. If so-called “sanctuary cities” know that federal funds will be withheld if they continue standing in the way of federal enforcement, there’s a good chance they will alter their course.
Commonsense policies like these help ensure the wise use of taxpayer dollars as well as proper enforcement of our immigration laws.
I appreciate all you’ve done and continue doing to support my consistent record of conservative leadership in Washington!
