11. How should Arkansas address our illegal immigrant population?
I truly believe that all people, within our country and state should be accounted for. I believe that the census, for 2020 should include all people, children and adults, within the accountability process. I believe that anyone that crosses our border should return to their country, within the time frame specified, of their visa. I have other thoughts about this subject that I will discuss at any time that you should call me.
12. How can Arkansas prevent mass shootings?
More secure schools. I do believe that the local and state police should be a part of this process. I do believe that the "Panic Button" that we recently funded in the legislature will be of great help to our schools. This could be step one in the ongoing process.
13. What specific legislation will you work to enact?
I will help develop legislation, that would bring our law enforcement and our local school boards and school administration to the table to help with this process to help with in securing our school protection. I will continue to work on legislation for our road systems. I will continue to work on legislation for our local governments, such as city and county governments, such as voting process and funding for local jail systems and upgrades in communications and any other issue that would help with local problems.
