11. How should Arkansas address our illegal immigrant population?
As a Republican I believe that people of all ethnicities and creeds strengthen our nation, we support their desire to become Americans though the legal process set up by our government. We should work towards having stronger immigration laws to prevent illegal immigration.
12. How can Arkansas prevent mass shootings?
In order to protect our children in schools we need security. I believe that we need to foster cooperation between school districts and Police Departments in order to share information about any concerns or threats to our children. I believe that we need to increase the amount of security in schools that we have already existing. Including police patrols in and around school grounds in order to both deter and prevent any threat to our children and our community.
13. What specific legislation will you work to enact?
As a pastor I believe firmly that the United States has been truly blessed. However I believe that we have taken God out of many aspects of our lives including school. As a legislator I would work with school districts and principals in order create an open forum to address the need for school prayer.
