11. How should Arkansas address our illegal immigrant population?
Ricky Hill (Republican)
Law enforcement can work closely with the federal government to ensure when an illegal alien is detained, they are not let back on the streets. Our state legislature can continue to promote e-verify to employers and support reforms that ensures those illegal immigrants do not receive state benefits.
12. How can Arkansas prevent mass shootings?
Ricky Hill (Republican)
We should promote better cross checking between gun purchases and mental health list. We should also train school resource officers how to best respond to these threats.
13. What specific legislation will you work to enact?
Ricky Hill (Republican)
I look forward to working towards more skill and workforce training in our high schools. This will have a long-term positive impact on growing our economy across the state.
