11. How should Arkansas address our illegal immigrant population?
Nancy Blount (Democrat)
Arkansas should address our illegal immigrant population by improving the positive aspects and decreasing or eliminating the negative aspects in current laws. The approach should be two-fold: 1. Efforts to stop illegal immigration moving forward, 2. Pass laws that will protect the children of illegal immigrants by revising current statutes to shorten the time it takes to become a citizen and remove a lot of the red tape.
Reginald Murdock (Democrat)
