11. How should Arkansas address our illegal immigrant population?
Dustin Parsons (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Jasen Kelly (Republican)
Support law enforcement so they can enforce laws on the books, which real reform should begin at the Federal Level. I would support legislation that would prohibit illegal immigrants from receiving benefits such as college scholarships, etc,...
12. How can Arkansas prevent mass shootings?
Dustin Parsons (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Jasen Kelly (Republican)
Prevention of mass shootings is a funding priority issue. I worked diligently to help pass the public safety initiative in Benton to provide the Benton Police Department with more resources to provide more School Resource Officers in the Benton School District. We must focus on more resources and more training for local & state law enforcement.
13. What specific legislation will you work to enact?
Dustin Parsons (Democrat)
Candidate Refused to Complete the Survey.

Jasen Kelly (Republican)
I want to work with other legislators, citizens, business owners, and teachers to improve many issues in Arkansas such as tort reform, worker's compensation reform, Career Technical Education, and the opioid epidemic.

I would work diligently to enact legislation that would require adjudicated youth across Arkansas to participate in Career Technical Educational Programs that have industry recognized certificates. Many of the youth that leave our correctional facilities across Arkansas, go home to the same situation that they entered the "system" in. I want to equip these youth with the tools necessary to become productive Arkansas citizens.
