Alexander Statement on the Senate Immigration Debate

Posted on February 15, 2018

“My goal is to get a result on both border security and DACA, which is why I cosponsored and voted for Senator Grassley's legislation implementing the president’s proposal, and why I also cosponsored and voted for the narrower bipartisan proposal offered by Senators Rounds and King—because it too solves the DACA problem and provides the $25 billion the president requested to improve border security.”

Senator Alexander also voted for legislation offered by Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) that would withhold some federal funding from “sanctuary cities” that do not cooperate with federal agencies to enforce federal immigration laws.
